I am sorry that one cell batter has burned part of your esophagus.

you may need a specialty thoracic surgeon who can do a surgery to repair your esophagus

not all small hosptials have surgeons who can do esophageal surgeries like this

you are better at a larger hospital for esophageal injuries like this.

you have good future prospects now that you are at a larger hosptial where they have surgeons who are trained in doing esophageal surgeries.

let me know if you have questions.
