Hi there ...
I just want to reassure you that you have not perforated the esophagus , perforation of esophagus is surgical emergency which need immediate surgical repair and patient cant be stable after rupture , shock and poor outcomes are more likely with it .
So you have not perforated but it is likely that you may have esophageal strictures which restricts fluids and food free entry .
I will suggest you to have Barium swallow to rule out esophageal issue .
Regards ***** ***** luck .
Please leave positive feedback for me .
This is because of stricture and not perforation , as stricture and stuck down of food in food pipe is the reason of burning in chest .
You should get strong antacid along with Cap Omeprazole 20 mg once at bed time .
And get Barium swallow .
Good luck .
Please rate my answer as good service .
Are you there ...
This is because of strictures and inflammation as I already mentioned perforated esophagus is surgical emergency and patient cant tolerate that .
So get antacids and Omeprazole .
If you have further quires let me know .
