You probably ought to be evaluated again by your GI doctor. Not sure what nodules you had or exactly where they were located so don’t know if this could lead to food getting caught or if this represents a new problem. The GI doctor would be able to figure out if food is indeed getting caught and what the treatment would be. You may need another endoscopy so see your GI doctor again. Good luck!
