Choke is a very scarey thing to go through. Nelson went through a nasty choke episode a while ago, where it was a 2 day stint.
I had to take him to the Vet who was able to scope him and do the job in getting him cleared. Now, he periodically chokes, when he gets excited in his stall and forgets what is in his mouth - so what we do is take him to the wash rack and run a hose of water by his mouth to help him salivate - it works because the choke isn't as severe as the one he origionally had.
I wouldn't give him any feed - because if that blockage is still there, adding more wont help. If liquid is still coming out of his nostrils, regardless of color, I'd be hesitant.
If it were I who were you in your position, I'd of had the vet come out asap. The longer the blockage is there, the more damage it can be doing to his throat, and you have a chance of any particles of feed getting into his lungs.
That's what happened to Nelson with his 2 day stint - he ended up on strong antibiodics for a while to help clear up any chances of phenomnia.
I wish I could help you.
