sometimes when i eat, the food and drink stays in the back of my throat instead of going down the esphogus. it has lingered there as long as 10 minutes after swallowing. i can't talk when this happens or the food/drink will spew all over the place. After reading a post from JF, i'm wondering if it could be the sphincter muscle? what are the symptoms of that muscle not working? can that be my problem? my last rad tx was 10/22/09 and my last surgery for recurrence was 2/28/12. i still have problems swallowing food and pills (always) but the bothersome problem is the one i mentioned above. if anyone has any ideas about why this occurs and/or what i can do to solve the problem, I'd appreciate your sharing. I asked the doctor about this but he honestly DIDN'T say a word. Thank you in advance for your replies.
God bless you,
