Hello to all
I have been keeping posted by reading everyone's posts but have not posted in a while. We have been going down to north Carolina for
The tread procedure and subsequent dilations in our quest to eat again. So far I am happy to say dad is drinking, chugging water down!!!
Eating speg. By the spoonfull. Foods that slide down easy are without a problem, however pizza while it does go down it is not as easy.
Therefore the experia or vital stim therapy was suggested to us along with salagen pills for extra saliva. The swallow doctor said the vital stim might just help us turn the corner in getting the food down, like jump starting a battery only jump starting the muscles to help push down the hard to swallow foods.
Has anyone tried this therapy? And has anyone tried the salagen pills for saliva?
To all that are struggling right now....never give up...
My best to all
