Achalasia type 111
I have recently been diagnosed with Achalasia type 111 and epigastric hernia; although the small hiatal hernia has been ruled out as far as my diagnosis with achalasia type 111 is concerned. I will have my first consultation next Wednesday with the surgeon who will be performing the (POEM) procedure on me. My referral from a general surgeon marked it as urgent, but I am still having to wait to be seen. I have lost and am losing alot of weight over the last couple of months. My symptoms with this are a slight burning sensation in midsection and the rib cage area and now seems to be going farther up. I'm eating less and less each day. The symptoms come on more when eating. The warming sensation also affects my head. Lately they feel like when I was going through menopause, but they don't last but for maybe minute at a time. Come and go during the day. I'm jittery in the .morning hours it seems. I'm mostly worried about my weight loss. Has or is anyone been diagnosed with this achalasia type 111? Can you tell me about how far advanced you are. I'm hoping that after next Wednesdays appointment, I'll be able to get the surgery procedure done soon afterwards. Even with all of the covid patients taking up the hospital beds.
