Esophageal disorder - don’t know what to eat
Hi I’m a 39 year old woman and I’ve got ineffective esophageal motility disorder, with spasms. My manometry showed 90% failed swallows. I can eat certain things like liquid drinks, smoothies, puréed soups and some solid foods like meltable solids such as shortbread cookies, cheetoh puffs, crackers,frozen yogurt, yogurt and basically anything you can give a baby. My doctors have told me there’s nothing they can do for me, that I’ve got to learn to deal and a nutritionist won’t be helpful. Ugh. They’ve been zero help. All they did was put me on Omeprazole and say it won’t get better and just hope it doesn’t get worse. So I’m looking for food ideas from others with this issue. I think from googling on my own I’ve realized maybe I can do mechanical soft, but I’m scared as when this began my swallow reflex would stop when something solid would get stuck and I don’t want to go backwards since I have to work full time and maintain my energy. I’ve been suffering with this for two years and lost a violent amount Of weight at first, so much so that my gall bladder went bad and had it removed in June. Ugh. It’s so hard “living” like this and these food holidays don’t help. Ugh. I’m tired of feeding my body liquid sugar and junk food because it goes down easy. I wish I could just bake a chicken breast and some broccoli. I’ve tried pureeing my food but I wanna vomit with puréed meat. Ugh. Any assistance with ideas for more solid/soft food that goes down for those with esophageal motility disorders would be beyond appreciated. Thank you.
