    Default Achalasia

    This is an extremely long-shot given Achalasia affects just 1 in 100,000 people, but anybody here with it and using weed to help?

    I have this awful nonsense, and in a nutshell, it means it is very tricky to swallow normal food - I've been living on not much more than soup for 12 months now - and there is no proven cure.

    When I vape it does seem to offer some respite, albeit brief.

    Anyway, this'll probably be the shortest ever thread, but worth a try.
    I passed the vicar's wife a plate of biscuits but I never expected to see her snatch.

    Hi brother, i have heard of your condition though must admit to not knowing a lot about it but was just wondering if you have tried tincture or maybe canna tea which to me would maybe get right in there and hit the spot, if you haven't done so already it may be worth a try matey, good luck brother and all the very best matey, G'.

    Oooo, thanks for that, fatha G' - I'd not considered that but will investigate.

    It's a vague miracle that anybody has even heard of it, so I'm pleased!

    Thanks, mate.

    Hi mate,

    Sorry to hear about your illness.

    I've seen this before with a friend of a friend. They tried everything to try and get away from surgery and I'm pretty sure they ended up having botox injections twice a year to open the esophagus.

    Have you been offered surgery to cut a bigger hole?

    Are you aware of the effects of botox injections?

    Worth a look pal, good luck.

    Concider trying a 1:1 THC - CBD tiniture or if you don’t have any CBD, make it with your THC strain but only part decarb. May help, may not but worth a try

    Ah, it is what it is - not the end of the world - just very annoying.

    I've had the three tests - gastroscopy (unsedated - nightmare), barium swallow (stick down the toilet for a few days afterwards) and the manometry (absolutely fucking hideous and I'd rather eat soup forever than do that again - guess I need to man-up-etry ;-) )

    I'm aware of the treatments. The specialist has suggested botox may be the first route, or balloon dilation, but I've already requested surgery from the outset. Even then, it's not the perfect solution.

    My research continues and I very much appreciate your reply.

    Just to bring this up to date: I now have a date for the operation - mid November.

    It's an op called a Heller's Myotomy - possibly a 4 night stay.

    And me plants'll be at 11 weeks...

    Shitting it, frankly.

    Maybe time to purchase that dripper I've promised myself.

    I bought my 500gph pump and a 12 dripper irrigation kit for less then 50$CAD at my local harware store . The hydro shops are absolute ripoffs imho
