How can esophagus scleroderma causing digestive problems be treated?
i had a monometry done not that long ago and was told that i have scleroderma of the esophagus. basically the muscles of my esophagus are not working. i throw up food days after i eat it and have digestive and esophogeal issues that wont disappear. i have lupus and crest syndrome. i was told by my doctor that i may have to have a feeding tube placed under the problem area of my esophagus or part of my esophagus removed. What is going on?
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
If this is the pathology of the esophagus that has damaged the cell of the esophagus or damaged the neuron cell, then it is better to have a feeding tube. In such case complete case study needed for an opinion as very little information given here.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
