age 81 and just had a stroke and all was fine and then 2 hours later my father died they said he had another stroke
If I had swallowing problems could even a small amount of morphine kill some one?

i wasn't saying i thought the stroke was caused by the morphine.. i was asking if any one thought he could have choked on his own spit?
I doubt the morphine had much to do with causing the stroke, if that is what you are asking. It can slow down respiration and cough reflex which could cause someone to choke while swallowing, but not sure that that has anything to do with a stroke.
