Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I finally have a diagnosis---subglottic trachea stenosis. This is why I have breathlessness upon exercise, no matter how small. Just getting up from a chair and walking down the hall leaves my wheezing and gasping. But I still manage to go swimming at the rehab center 3 or 4 times a week. I do better in the water because, as the doctor at Massachusetts General told me, it's less gravity, less weight you have to carry. Exercise in the water makes a workout bearable, something I couldn't do on land.

The thoracic specialist wants me to get my acid reflux in check before he does the corrective surgery. I have a feeling it's going to be a long wait.
