He speaks with a slur. He has PEG tube for his feeding. He can't swallow solids or liquid, only saliva. When he speaks or move his neck, he felt the tightness of the neck.
His Doctor did not inform him about his ability to swallow later on. The throat tightness gets him to cough out phlegm quite often. When he has difficulty coughing out the phlegm he will experience shortness of breath.
My brother was given tab.Fluimucil 600mg for his phlegm. He was also given some solutions for him to gargle. He still has fungal infection on his mouth and given Nystatin cream to apply. He had been assessed by the Speech Therapist and found not ready to take orally. Could you please elaborate more on Dilation of the area and by whom when his condition warrants such treatment.
