Do you have access to a barium swallowing test at your hospital? It may help your doctors determine the cause of your difficulty in swallowing and a speech and language pathologist (who usually administers these tests) may be able to give you some tips on how to make swallowing easier and tell you what not to do. Swallowing difficulties can be dangerous if liquids go the wrong way and end up in the lungs.
