Had my scopes today - in addition to the issues found in the colonoscopy, the endoscopy found an esophageal stricture. They stretched it while I was under.
We didn't talk long about it, it seemed secondary to the Crohns issues found, but I know nothing about it so I'm anxious for more info. He thinks it's likely caused by years of acid reflux and GERD (which is why he did the scope initially).
Will the stretching last awhile?
My throat hurts a LOT - how long does it hurt after this procedure?
Is it linked to Crohns somehow or just part of the GI issue family?
What have you done to treat it?
Thanks for any personal exp you can share!
