feline esophagus

Has anyone else ever been diagnosed with transverse esophageal folds (feline esophagus)? The surgeon sent me my barium swallow records, which showed florid acid reflux and and 2.5cm long stricture. It scared me at first, because I was already diagnosed and then undiagnosed with eosinophic (allergic) esophagitis, which can cause feline esophagus. I read on the internet, however, that it can also be caused by severe acid reflux. Anyone else experience this?

Re: feline esophagus

Sorry to hear about your problems. I guess your condition is not very common. Would you please keep us posted about your treatment and progress?

Wishing you the best of luck,
