Achalasia is a condition that makes swallowing difficult. Sometimes the treatment for it involves surgery, especially
Heller myotomy. Over 90 percent of patients can have good long term results after the surgery.
The surgery usually involves a hospital stay of 1—3 days, and a recovery time of 2—3 weeks.
After the surgery, you can only have liquid diet for the first week and then you need to follow a nutritionist’s specific diet instructions.
