Does anyone know any articles or have any knowledge of what can be done when food gets impacted in an esophageal stent???
A few days ago we all had a huge scare, Jr began choking after only sipping on a pop. It took a while of him gagging before whatever it was went down and he felt better.
Again today it happened when only taking two small bites of his food. He fell to his knees throwing up but nothing helped. My mom called me in tears and we all went to prayer and after a while whatever it was went down.
After this happens he is totally drained of all his strength.
Yesterday they told the oncologist of the first episode and he told my brother there is nothing that can be done about that.
I thought they could at least go in and clean the stent out???
I'm not talking just some gagging but complete choking!!!
What can be done???
I told my mom I would try to find if anything can be done.
Watching her son choke before her eyes and just pounding him on the back and crying out to God, she just broke down.
Do you just watch someone choke to death????
This is crazy!!!
