Hey there Martha! I don't have any stories for you, but I do have a suggestion that may help your swallowing problem...have you tried drinking through a straw? It may sound stupid, or like an easy answer, but I have heard from many that it does help.
Also, if you are doing a lot of drinking liquids, you could drink Ensure, or something like that to assure you are getting the nutrients you need.
Just a few suggestions. Hope it helps, and do keep us updated on how you are doing!
Wishing you the best!
