I hope I am in the right place. I have dismotility had a manometer test done it came up lack of perastaltis in my esophagus this makes it hard to swallow at times. I have to sit up straight with a pillow behind my back. What helps me is sitting upright in a chair and not laying down for about an hour. I'm only allowed soft diet and liquids. I'm missing salads lol but I'm concerned I'm not getting enough vitamins. Any suggestions on how to get some in my diet?

Survivor of esophageal cancer / esophagectomy etc: 2020
Recently completed chemo & radiation after cancer found in my throats very very close to larynx. Needless to say my poor throat (interior) is burned and pretty sore. Makes it a nightmare to swallow.
I drink either Ensure or cheaper equivalent: Equate (Walmart brand). Although it could taste a bit better it's do'able. Look at all the "good stuff" in an 8 oz bottle. I drink at least 2 / day.
Good luck!!!
