My husband has had a problem with bouts of severe coughing (to the point where he has difficulty breathing!), often brought on by eating dry food but also can happen at anytime. A consultant did a barium scan and said he had a slight pouch and a lazy epiglottis but hasn't recommended any treatment except drinking water with his food. It is very embarrassing for him if we are out with friends for a meal as sometimes his food gets stuck and he has to vomit it back up to clear his throat...a quick trip to the loo is a frequent occurrence. Can anyone help with advice or relate to this problem? Many thanks.
