Went back for my 5 wk post NF visit with the surgeon. The pain I have been experiencing are esophageal spasms - hurts like the devil. She said according to my pre-surgical tests, I have an irritable esophagus that spasms. If it doesn't get better (hopefully by the 3 month mark), she said we may consider going back in & either stretching the esophagus some or cutting the lower esophageal muscles so they don't spasm so hard. Has anyone else had these spasms or had to have anything done because of them? Did the spasms resolve?
