Swallowing problem in Vent patient
My dad who is 68 years old is a vent patient. HE has been on vent since last January and is in a rehad center. WE're hoping to take him home. My dad cannot eat or swallow anything and there is no medically reason as far as the speech therapist tell us. HE has never had a stroke or nerve damage or anything that would prevent him eating or drinking. I like to find out if anyone else has been in a situation like this or can lead to me to a site that give me more information. Please contact
