Thanks again gmcraft.
His radiation begins tomorrow and they still haven't given him a barium swallow test. I called last week only got to talk to a nurse and the only thing she could tell me is "the doctor hasn't ordered one." !!! Smh
I don't know what to do. I feel like we need to know what he is able to eat and what he should avoid. So far he's still only drinking milkshakes and NutriBullet. Not to mention, the number they gave us for the test is also for a speech therapist which I also feel he needs. Makes no sense.
