Hi this is Robin. I had stage 4 throat cancer and I thought I should update whats going on with me now. My speech therapyst says that I do not have the groves that help food go through your throat. Therefore, my wind pipe and throat where food go are at the same level thus making any thing I eat or swallow go into to my airways rather than into my stomach. I am doing doing throat exercises and have done Stimulation therapy thus far which still keeps me on the peg tube (feeding tube). She mentioned a surgery to correct this but I could loose my voice box. I haven't talked to anyone about that yet. I was wondering if anyone out there is having the same issues. Thanks.
