My husband will be 14 years post diagnosis and treatment this November. He recently had an awful case of aspiration pneumonia which resulted in PEG tube placement as he is NPO. The issue is the collection of globs of mucus in his throat much like he had during and immediately after radiation treatment. We have been advised to purchase a suction machine. can anyone recommend a machine? There are many listed online and I'm finding it hard to decide which will be best. Thanks for your help.
