My husband kept getting aspiration pneumonia from the swallowing issues. The docs at Mayo injected Botox into his espahagus about 8 months ago and we have had no problems since then.

Hi @tntredhead thanks for sharing something that worked for your husband. I’m glad to hear that his aspiration pneumonia is not an issue. Do the Botox injections have to be repeated on a regular basis?

We were told they might need to be repeated in the future if I noticed he was having a problem.  So far, so good.The Redhead
