Esophagitis

Esophagitis is another common side effect of chemo which can enflame the esophagus and reduce the diameter of the esphageal opening.  It can cause you to choke on just about anything, even water.  Water will pass without actually endangering you, but it can sure feel like it’s not going to make it!  I had quite a bit of trouble with this one.  I learned to take small bites, chew very thoroughly and have water handy at all times.  Even so, there were some times I wondered if I was going to make it.
