I am new to the board.
My esophagus is man made. I was born with a rare birth defect in 1975 ( it was rare back then ). Anyway they took part of my large intestines and man made my esophagus. I just recently had a ct scan which showed the lower part of my esophagus was enlarged.
I have tried to look up information on this on the net but had no luck. I found where people could have theirs enlarged but nothing on why it would get enlarged on its own.
My regular doctor is in the process now of setting me up a appointment with a specialists to run the light down my throat to check it more in-depth. She did say it could be where they did the surgery could caused it to be bigger. I hope thats all it is. But I have had the sans done before and they never said it was enlarged before.
You would think after 13 operations to fix it when i was a baby I wouldnt be scared, but I am terrified now. I do have acid reflux and im just getting over pneumonia.
I have so many questions I really dont know where to start or where to post them to be honest.
