Thank you for the responses. I did have an EGD, but no significant narrowing was shown. I had my thyroid checked in October so that's not it. I'm not normally a soda drinker but my grandma has had Crohn's for most of her life (at least we think it's Crohn's - she was never diagnosed, but has had many stomach surgeries and almost bled to death from ulcers) and has had the same problems I have so always had to have a coke available for when food wouldn't go down and she advised me to do that so I started it and it really has saved me at times. Water doesn't help the food get through wherever it's getting stuck. My BM's are sporadic. Either the big D or constipated slightly, almost like it's stuck and then all hell breaks loose!
Thank you for the info. I guess I'll just have to hang in here and hope for the best. Take care.
