Perceived effectiveness for Swallowing difficulty (dysphagia):
Advice & Tips:
Dysphagia prevents me from consuming foods that have solids and thin liquids (e.g., chicken noodle soup). Moderately thick sauces are okay (e.g., ketchup). I also avoid spicy foods (which I love) and alcohol because they hurt so bad if they go down the wrong pipe. I cannot converse while eating; I must concentrate on swallowing. Thank the Lord I still cough when something goes the wrong way.
