Firstly, I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question. I have limited side effects from my medicine other then injection site reactions from Fuzeon. I have had to undergo 24 dilations for a stricture in my esophagus. It keeps closing and they tried using a stent but it migrated to my stomach. I was curious if you were familiar with other cases of this and what I might be able to do. My GI & ID doctors don't really have an answer. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

Stricture of the esophagus often from chronic reflux esphagitis is often difficult to manage and recurrent. It occurs in the HIV- population as well. It has not been linked to a particular HIV drug as a side effect. KH

osteoporosis and hiv
