Post throat cancer

I am new to this site but hope that someone can help me. My mom was diagnosed w/ SCC in May of 2002. The docs gave her little chance of survival but she beat the odds. She had to go through 4 weeks of chemo and 7 weeks of rad 2 times a day. Then in February of 2003 she had to undergo radiation therapy for her lung. She still is not able to get anything down her throat...except for minimal amounts of water. She went twice to try and have her throat stretched open but the docs couldn't find the hole to guide the equipment down there in order to stretch it open. Has anyone or is anyone experiencing the same difficulty and have the docs found a way to stretch it open? Any info would be a tremendous help.
