Customer Question

I went to the ER like you told me to my last question! My question today is it still hurts to swallow and really hard to eat or drink anything! Should the pain be lasting this long?

This is Dr. David

with severe burns of the esophagus, the pain can last this long

you could have scar tissue in the throat and esophagus.

you need to follow up with your GI doctors to make sure the area heals properly

you might need to see a speech and swallow therapist to work on exercises to stretch scar tissue from the burn injury
