By now you have had your surgery, as I can see by the date of your post…how did it go?

My Mum suffers from achalasia – diagnosed in 2007. She has had at least 12 EGDs, for either dilatation, or botox injections, and has had surgery in 2009 – a Heller myotomy with a fundoplication. The latter procedure was “too tight” and now is going for a consult with Mayo to see what to do next. She can’t eat anything by mouth, and has a feeding tube to get her calories (for a year now). The last two dilatations didn’t work. I hope this doesn’t discourage you…how old are you and how far along are you with the achalasia?
