I don't see any recent threads on this subject. I was wondering if anyone out there that has had this procedure can answer some questions for me:
1. Will the tightness go away in my esophagus when I eat? In other words, 3-6 months from now, will I be able to eat normally? I get this even from liquids, but not all the time. My doctor told me to try introducing foods but I am still eating lots of cream of wheat, grits, oatmeal, yogurt, and soup. Right after I swallow it feels like a stabbing pain in my chest, but it dissipates. It's almost as if the food or liquid, in this case, were stuck in my esophagus.
2. Will I ever be able to drink a beer again? I can burp some, and sometimes I feel like I am refluxing from drinking fluids? It's almost like a burp that comes back up.
That's all for now, just a couple of quick questions. I would be interested in hearing about any success stories or any advice, my mind is open.
