Ugh, I had to take the barium swallow test several times after my stroke to prove I was capable of eating whole foods. There is a little 'shelf' in the back of your throat that is supposed to dump any food or liquids down your esophogus. My stroke has interupted the signal for it. I still sometimes get choking or coughing attacks just by not paying attention to the spit in my mouth. And I hack until I can get another swallow organized. They kept me on softened foods for several weeks, until I was able to prove myslf choking to death-proof.
