Welcome to our world, we are glad you joined us and I look forward to getting to know you better.
The trachea (windpipe) is the breathing tube that begins just below the voice box and leads into the lungs. The trachea is made up of pliable cartilage and connective tissue that can expand and contract. Narrowing of this tube (tracheal stenosis) can be caused when tissue within the trachea becomes inflamed due to a medical condition, such as acid reflux.
The information I have states that Tracheal resection is so far the best alternative to cure the stenosis completely.
I agree, get rid of your curent physician and find someone who is working for you and never should you be verbally abused by any physician. This is unacceptable in my opinion. Pateints have the right to information and respect at all times.
