Good evening all...My husband is now almost 9 months out of treatment. A couple months ago after continually having trouble with swallowing and choking the ENT sent him for a swallow test and it was positive for aspirations on all foods except really thick ones. The ENT said that treatment can sometimes cause your epiglottis to not work right and that he may need a trachea or permenant feeding tube; niether of which were really discussed about when it should happen. Has anyone with cancer to the larynx had this problem? He was diagnosed with pheumonia today.
