I had big problems with the esophagus after ulcers due to narrowing. Ate mostly very liquid food. The doctor said it may eventually pass, but maybe not. When tried to eat something more solid that ended tragically. My daughter and her husband insisted on a trip to Germany, even the all found and made. At the clinic I had treatment with stretching, if I am not mistaken is called probing, and then even watched some time with me, advised to start with small portions and gradually increase the hardness and size of the portions. It's been almost 3 months, thank God everything is fine. Special thanks to my doctor Dr. Pfaffenbach.
