I had radiation for throat cancer 19 years ago and now my epiglotis is not working right. I can only eat soft food . Is there anything else to be done besides a feeding tube!!

I had Hodgkins in 1980, treated with radiation. I was having trouble swollowing food also. I had my esophagus stretched, it is not a permenant fix, I need to have stretched about every 18-24 months. Works well and I can swollow normally!
