dear customer,

thank you for the information,

As per the symptoms it seems that you are suffering from gastroparesis.It is a chronic condition and is caused by damage to vagus nerve.

The treatment is symptomatic.The medication drugs like metaclopramide, domperidone, eryhtromycin etc may be used.YOu should also use small frequent meals instaed of large three times a day meal.

The feeding tube may be placed if the symptoms are severe and not controlled.

Dear customer,

If the condition is severe and you have difficulty in swallowing food then the other causes of painful swallowing should also be ruled out.

As per your gastroenterologist suggestion the feeding tube will be a alternative for your condition and you should consider this if this helps you.
