    I'm going to be operated on in the morning for a constricted esophagus. Have to say I'm a little scared. They say it should be no problem. Might not be on the forums tomorrow night.

    You will do fine brother. Just trust in your maker and hold your family and friends close to your heart. After a day or so you will be back on your level and looking forward to a beautiful spring. And, the big plus, this constricted esophagus will be a memory.

    I'll be back at the office, busy, going to a few meetings tomorrow. I'll say a little prayer for you and think about you several times. You multiply that by all the people who will be wishing you well ... you should then know you are going to do just fine.


    God bless you brother and get on your feet soon. I love the back-and-forth on The Name Game. We'll keep the thread live for you until you get back.

    It's not too late to run away, just the gown and IV may slow you down a bit.

    What is the latest brother? You've got to be growing tired of milkshakes by now. I'd say, you probably won't want to look at one for a couple of years after this.

    Let us know how you are feeling?

    Finally able to eat normal food. Shakes are very unwanted at this point. Biopsy came back and the is no cancer. They have me on acid reflux meds and told me to lose weight. Over all, I'm pretty much back to normal. Thanks for asking.

    I've had reflux for years and as long as I keep clear of my trigger foods all is well.

    I find red meat, white bread and red wine affect it adversely and now mainly eat fish, vegetables and fruit along with plenty of water.

    I hope you stay healthy my brother.

    Kindest regards from the UK

    I pretty much eat the same. Haven't eaten white bread in I don't know how many years, mostly a taste preference. Veggies and fruit all the time and red meat three, four times a year. Still trying to kick the sweets and starches habit.
