My dad had cardiovascular surgery resulting in a probable stroke. Since then he has not been able to swallow efficiently enough to eat or drink. He has a "peg" tube for formula feedings every four hours. (He is still very alert and active for 79.) He suctions his own saliva, because it often ends up going down the wrong pipe. Has anybody experienced this? I'm wondering the recovery potential as well as length of recovery, and what can be done to speed the recovery process. Thank you for your input.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
