Trouble Swallowing After Hysterectomy
Since my surgery in Nov 2008,(hysterectomy) I have had difficulty swallowing even my saliva. Sometimes I will get an overabundance of it and it becomes white and foamy. It comes and goes, I will be totally fine one minute then then next I can't swallow anything. It is very frustrating and exhausting. I have to sleep propped up at night and when I am really having trouble when I go to sleep I wake up constantly gasping for air.
My throat does not hurt. Every now and then I will burp but not often. I have had chest pains, waves of heat, and moments where my tongue feels thick. My blood pressure has been running low 96/65. I feel as if I am having a heart attack or stroke. My heart has been checked out with EKG and all that and is fine. About 1 month after surgery my tongue and inside my lips got extremely red underneath and was very painful, that hasn't happened since. Any ideas of what would help as I am not getting much help at all from the docs just lots of bills.
