Several years ago I was treated surgically for achalasia. I had a Heller myotomy. My stomach problems became worse than before the surgery. Prior to treatment, I was able to eat large meals and only suffered occasionally from the choking sensation deep in my esophagus. Now I can only eat small meals and I frequently get a sloshy feeling from liquids food sitting in my stomach. I was later diagnosed with slow emptying. The cause was said to be idiopathic. The doctors said they could do little aside from another similar surgery. They suggested this surgery would lead to "dumping". All I would like to do is enjoy a meal like I used to, without the sloshy feeling. Also I feel like my achalasia is back and worse than before. Eating several types of food, meat in particular, causes severe pain along with a bout of breathlessness. Is there any hope for me?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
