    am going in the hospital in a week for something called kenalog injection esophageal.
    i have tried to do surches on this is finding very little info on it.
    if anyone has ever gone threw this or knows anything about it i would love to hear about it.. is there any side affects i need to worry about and does it hurt afterwards.
    i go threw throat diffeliations about every one to 3 months.
    i changed GI Dr.'s because the other one i had did not like the idea that i was doing my researches online.
    the new GI Dr. did a streatch about 2 months ago and i started having swallowing problems less than a month after. so now they are doing this injection.
    any info would be helpfull
    thanks for the help

    I presume you mean this - it sounds like steroid injections done at the same time as a dilation, to reduce the chance to strictures growing back.
