Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If this is the pathology of the esophagus that has damaged the cell of the esophagus or damaged the neuron cell, then it is better to have a feeding tube. In such case complete case study needed for an opinion as very little information given here.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
