Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
There is obviously a stricture or stenosis of esophagus and if this is benign then repeated endoscopic dilatation are required or self expanding stent can be placed in some specialized centres. Also, in refractory cases, additional surgeries may be necessary. Wish you good health. Regards

52 - female, I started with a gurgling stomach a few months ago, and then burping, and finally woke one night to extreme acid reflux . I read about low stomach acid and tried HCL and it has been helping me digest my food. I have constipation , a slight pain under my rib cage, tested and had ultrasound for everything, and results were all good. So my naturopath believes pylori might be the culprit. I am very healthy otherwise, thin, and eat organic foods, in the summer I grow my veggies, I know longer drink coffee, tea, alcohol , or sugar. Does this sound like pylori causing my low stomach acid.? Help, thanks.!
