I had C3 thru T1 posterior and anterior surgery on May 26th. I was on a soft food diet leaving the hospital due to problems swallowing. I have graduated to foods containing pasta. My throat isn't sore but it feels like my muscles don't work properly and food gets stuck. I have tried eating things like subway seafood and such but still can't swallow it down without having to choke it back up. Has anyone else had this problem. I have lost 10 plus pounds since surgery. Any advice would be greatly appriciated.
