Neck fusing plus swallow problems

On 29th of May 2014 they fused number 3-4-5-6-7 in my neck , this was a 6 hr surgery .
Everything went good only not my throat , they send me home after 3 days and toke me back in two days later .
I was choking even unable to drink water , now it is 6 of June and I still have severe troubles with food , chase each bite with water .
It is not hurting but it is irritating , food is not going down , even water wants to go up direction nose .
I had several surgeries and this is the first time with this problem ,
My food don't taste anymore because you have to chew it until its liquid and if you swallow to fast you have to rechew like a cow .
Is there anybody who has a good idea ?
I did read the comments on this article and I am not very hopeful , surgeon told me that I am one in the thousand patients but if Ilook at this topic , I am not the only one .

Any suggestions ?
I will try anything , I am 65 and I love good food only not on this moment .
