Urologist 's  Response
This is a neurodegenerative disorder, which is progressive...we have drugs which are developed to slow its progression...but unfortunately, we cannot stop it totally...the drug is Riluzole..which is taken once daily...I hope he is able to breathe well on his own... Its better if you feed him by a tube in the stomach called he has problems in swallowing..u should also arrange for a good physiotherapy for his lungs so that he can breathe effectively
