Re: swallowing difficulties

Smithrenee, how r things for u now? I am going though the same thing only much worse. Takes me 1 1/2 hours to drink a up of tea. I have lost 20 lbs in like 2 1/2 months. I am petrified it's cancer. Last Friday was to have a scope done but I had a bad reaction to the meds and they couldn't preform the procedure. The GI doc now wants to meet with me before going further. I don't think he listns to how bad my swallowing is. The cookie swallow test showed a "filling defect" and the barium X-rays showed the same thin, possibly extrincit they said. It's been a nightmare
