idea  Does anyone have esophageal spasm?  And, if so, can you recommend foods that work for you? The only foods I seem to tolerate are jello, apples, watermelon, eggs, Special K, oatmeal, and 1% milk, and steak (weird mix, I know).   I appreciate your feedback.

Hi ballysmom52,

Potatoes have worked for me,  and applesauce. Eating non processed, and relatively bland foods has also helped. I love your list, I eat the same things. Thanks for posting. turn

Thanks for your input.  Just curious did you have a manometry?  If so, what were the results?  Any info on it is very much appreciated. 

Thanks again!!

No I havent had the test. I know others have. You may want to put the question out as a new thread.

ballysmom52,

I just recently had a Lap Hill Hiatal Hernia repair and have suffered esophageal spasms post op.  I had the motility study pre surgery and post surgery along with a barium swallow study.  My results are that I have very limited motility mid and lower esophagus.  Has not been very fun!  I have been limited to clear liquids.  Even things like applesaue are hard for me to swallow.  With the clear liquids, I have to take them very very slow and sometimes can't handle the pain.  I was in the hospital for about 17 days.  I have lost over 25 pounds and currently have a PIKK line (peripherally inserted central catheter) in my right arm and have to have TPN feedings (Total Parenteral Nutrition) because I can't get enough nutrition.
