      Has anyone here been treated for an esophageal stricture? I had one when I was a kid. Long story, but I ended up having an emergency appendectomy during that time and my intubation tube in surgery opened my stricture right up. Thinking I may have a stricture again (waiting for my dr. appointment) and wondering what treatment/the procedure is like from an SMA perspective.

      Honestly never heard of it. Curious how they find out. Swallow study? Endoscopy? I’ve had both of those procedures done but for different reasons.

        It’s typically detected through a barium swallow. Then I believe the procedure is like an endoscopy with a little balloon attached to the end of it and they go in and inflate the stricture. Did you need anesthesia for your endoscopy?

          They wanted to put me under, but I talked them into doing it with twilight sedation and it was fine.
