If a segment of your vagus nerve was surgically removed during a pneumonectomy, is there anything besides reglan (metoclopramide) which can restore esophageal action?

In brief: Yes
A lot depends on the symptoms you are having.
If you feel that food is hanging up in the esophagus, then fluid should be taken with the meal and between bites to facilitate movement of foods into the stomach.
