    Dilation of the esophagus

    My husband is dilation done on his esophagus next week. Scar tissue from radiation is causing reflux problems. Id love to hear any advice from anyone who has had this done. Thanks

      I had a lot of swallowing problem because of reflux and I had to have my esophagus stretched. I am thinking he has already had a scope down his throat to see what was going on. They did the same procedure as that when they stretched my esophagus. and in my case, I didn't even have a sore throat, which they said I might.
