Hubby's Endoscopy Result

The hubby had a biopsy when they did the endoscopy and was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. It pretty much means that all the allergies he has is causing his esophagus to constrict making swallowing difficult. Even environmental allergies can cause this. They stretched his throat and sent us a Rx. He hasn't decide if he'll use the Rx yet. We had the result sent to the Doc also and he called with a natural treatment so we'll see how that goes. I think its kind of odd that they wouldn't suggest trying to find out the cause and trying to avoid the offender, that only makes sense to me, why just put a "band aid" on the problem get rid of the problem. He is planning to redo his food sensitivities and environmental allergies with the Doc if he ever finds the time. So hopefully that will help him out. I very thankful for the technology to find these things out and help to resolve some of the issues. It is amazing what they can do. Maybe he'll he doing well enough to take me out next week for our ten year anniversary.

Wow, all those fancy dr. words I had to look them up what they all meant. Sounds very painful to me. Does it hurt him at all or is it just hard to swallow? Thank the Lord for dr. D huh! Sounds like they'd have Isaac on med's the rest of his life for it otherwise. Hopefully the natural stuff from Dr. D will work!
