Re: how often do u get dilation done yourself ?
Hi there! This is my first post and I wish someone with more dilation history would answer too. I had my first dilation done 9 months ago. I weaned off the prilosec soon after, but started having swallowing troubles again a few months ago. I had suffered with heartburn and swallowing trouble for a year without seeking treatment until I had meat get lodged in my esophagus which ended in an e.r. visit. I was diagnosed with gerd, hiatal hernia, schatzki's ring, and eosinophilic esophagitis. I had food allergy testing over 18 years ago and am supposed to get it done again, but finances don't allow that yet.
Sorry for using your post as my introduction.
Hope you get some answers soon!
