We've encountered a new problem. Bob has been on a feeding tube for almost 10 months now. It was mostly an inability to chew his food, more than a swallowing problem. His weight had dropped down to a dangerous level, so he had the choice of feeding tube or to continue to slowly starve to death. Anyway, lately he has not been able to swallow his own saliva, and heaven knows there is an over abundance of that! He takes a med called "Buscopan" to help with the slobbering/drooling. Is there some type of suction device, or some method of assisting with this inability to swallow?
