Wondering who has a a HM with partial wrap and how long it lasted?
Hi @nmr and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I added your question to the Digestive Health group as well (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/digestive-gastrointestinal-problems/) where you find additional discussions about achalasia like these:
– Achalasia: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/achalasia/
– Esophagus issues: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/esophagus-issues/
– POEM Surgery for Achalasia: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/two-months-after-poem-surgery-for-achalasia/
– Achalasia Chronic pain: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/achalesia-chronic-pain/
I'm tagging @judyinaz @amoll157 @fourof5zs @leeross123 @ryman @hopeful33250 @uvamomb2007 and @dandl48 in the hopes that they will return to share their experiences with Heller myotomy or other treatment options.
NMR, are you preparing to have a Heller myotomy? What's your experience with non-surgical treatments thus far?
I had pseudo achalaysia and had a Heller Myotomy performed in 2016. I can swallow with no difficulties whereas before, even water was difficult. I had a full Nissen fundoplication, but it had to be taken down. I now have a partial wrap that is somewhat effective in controling my reflux. I still have reflux, though.
