My sister has a similar GI issue that results in her throat basically growing tighter and tighter until she can't breathe (stenosis), so she gets throat surgery every 2 years to open it back up again.

4-6 months to recover from throat surgery, a year of easy breathing, 6-12 months of gradually more restricted airway, and then surgery again.

All because her stomach produces too much acid and can't keep it from entering the esophagus.
