My 11 year old daughter has swollen arytenoids, so much so that she has had to have a trach put in.She can't swallow, she is on a feed tube.This occured a few days after neck/cranial surgery, but the doctors have no answer to the cause. Anyone have any similar problems and possible causes/treatments?
