Hi. I posted earlier about my 8 wk post op check up and about declining to have a swallowing test right now. Now, I'm thinking it may be a good idea. What are your opinions?
I feel like I have a lump in my throat even worse than right after surgery. I can swallow but at times it's an effort. I had an esophageal dilation (stretched) several years ago and am wondering if that may be a reason this surgery has caused so much trouble with my throat? I made sure to tell the anesthesiologist about it before my surgery. It's a miserable feeling like having a scarf tied around my neck to tight. It's been very bad today for some reason. Most days it lessens after taking pain meds.
I wonder if I should ask for an endoscopy instead of the swallowing test so if it needs stretched again it can be done at the same time? Anyone else have these problems and what did you do? Sorry for more questions. Believe me I'm sick of my whining too!
