Bananas,honey, hot water, green tea ,warm salt gargles, Eno, and finally vomiting. 4 pieces of food came out. Now the next morning no sensation of food stuck is there but throat is sore. Any thing i can do for relief and prevention of infection? Pls advise it is Sunday and no ENT's are available.

This is a serious problem and may need hospitalisation. You need to go to the Gastroenterology department of your nearest big hospital for an upper GI endoscopy to rule out any obstructive pathology or malignancy. Please avoid small nursing homes or polyclinics as most such centers, these endoscopes are not properly sterilised and you could contract a serious drug resistant hospital infection which could kill you!
