I am looking for anyone who has experience in this area.My husband was diagnosed on July 1,2009. He finished chemo & radiation Sept.10 and is still unable to swallow. He still has very thick mucous that he has to spit out & this keeps him awake most of the night. There is also still alot of blood coughed up. Has been tube feeding since august & he also had to have a trach in July. Doctors keep telling us he should be eating by now but no assistance in doing this. Is this normal & how long should we expect this to last. Have an appointment with oncologist tomorrow. Are ther any specific questions I should bbe asking.
I will also check back in morning before we leave.
