My son choked the end of Sept on a fried clam strip. My mom had to do the heimlic like 5 times and I had to call 911, and when they arrived it was out and he was ok. He went through a period where he wanted everything cut small because he was scared. As of 3 wks Sat he started where he didnt want to eat anything but as of that Thurs he started eating yogurt. He has yet tried anything else and will not. I took him to the drs because he complained it was his throat but its not. I do not know what to do to try and get him over his fear. His peditrician says ignore the behavior. I cant he was a great eater and now nothing and from his 5yr checkup in Aug to Tues he lost 2 ounces. I know not alot but how much more until he is very ill. Please someone help. I feel its my fault!!!!!!!!!!Answer Question

He was traumatized, and I know because it has happened to me, it is a horrible feeling to be chocking on something and you can't breathe! I suggest a child psycologist to help through this.
My son had an experienced when he was 7 or so with a bee sting, he had an allergic reaction and the doctor told him that next time he gets stung he could had a reaction that would clos his air ways and die, and he started chewing his food like for 20 minutes before he would swallow, the therapy helped him a lot and he eventually got over it.
