My Dad takes nothing by mouth and uses a suction machine alot , guaffasin makes him puke from his peg tube, any tricks you folks know that may help? or tricks to getting it out easier and more comfortable? he may need a trach if this gets worse, the VA will not give him any more operations, his chest musscle was used to rebuild his throat, he lost some of his tongue, radiation burnt his saliva glands so he was dry before this past surgery, would like to see him more comfortable and not choking.
