: Hello,
: I have a family member who recently had a "moderate" stroke and currently cannot swallow. He just entered into an intensive rehab program. I would like to hear from others who have had inability to swallow and how the recovery progressed. Thank you for any information on this subject.

Hi. A friend of mine recently had a stroke and also can not swallow. He was given a feeding tube.Without the tube he will die of lack of nutrition. I am looking for some positive input on swallow therapy or something.
