!!!!!!!!I need to talk to someone who knows what the numbers and stuff mean on
All in a nut shell the doc said:
Upper and middle of my esophagus the numbers were in the 30's and 40's
my lower esophagus where it connects to the stomach the number was a 2.
Can this be right?
He said that hes done/seen thousands of these tests and never seen numbers as low as mine were. He suspects that the equipment was not functioning correctly so he is sending me for a barium swallow this Thursday.
He said if it was a malfunction in the equipment and the barium swallow says my esophagus motility is working like it should for the most part, he will more than likely to a full wrap but loosely. And he has me down for surgery April 3rd. just in case the barium swallow tells him what he needs to know. I have my next follow up with him on Monday to confirm or deny surgery.
If the results are in fact correct he said he didn't know how I was eating with out choking to death and surgery would make everything worse or possibly kill me.
We have a family history of lupus and scleroderma. We believe I have scleroderma but it hasn't been confirmed with tests yet. IF the manometry results are right and there are no muscles at the bottom of my esophagus we believe that's a good sign I possibly have scleroderma. I know that if I have scleroderma I need further tests to find out why my esophagus has stopped working.
My concern in this post are the manometry study results... and could mine be right? Any cases of this happening to anyone else? What happens now?
My head is not in a very good place right now BC of the good and the bad of either way.
