My husband had his esophagectomy at the end of May of this year. He had 3 scopes with dilation. The time before this scope he was having issues with swallowing food and liquids. After the last 2 scopes the Dr. seemed puzzled over the symptoms and how little he needed to dilate him. This past time he was experiencing food impaction.
Interesting enough, my husband said after each dilation he noticed a difference when swallowing. The Dr. recommended that he see a speech pathologist to see if that would help.
I am wondering if anyone had a similar experience and the outcome.
