Hi all, I have had all my cervical discs fused. Well for the six years I had issues with swallowing and last year an ENT doctor had me do a swallowing test and sure enough the rods and screws in my neck cause my flap in my throat to hit against the plates and well I can barely swallow and I choke on food. So I have to eat basically over cooked veggie and bean watered soup and liquids. I have lost tons weight and still losing. Also now pain is developed in the neck along with feeling like I am being waterboarded and drowning, it is the worst feeling all the time like I am being choked. I was told they cannot remove the rods and screws it is to dangerous. They pit me through a speech therapy and all of that too.
I am getting worse and I am at my wits end. Has anyone else gone through this where you can barely swallow and your throat hurts all the time and you feel like your drowning or feeling like you are being choked? If so did you get and help if so how? I am desperate for relief.
