Just got the final result through from Maddies bronchoscopy. It shows aspirated food on her lungs!
She had a PH study done a few months ago which showed no reflux so why now does it show aspirated food on lungs?
I have a very vague letter from the consultant stating this and that she'll discuss it at the next appointment. In the meantime we have to start her on Omeprazole and Gaviscon.
Does this mean she has Reflux? Is this what's making her ill and not Asthma?
Has she got Asthma??
Is aspirated food the same as reflux or different?
I'm very confused by it all! We were just beginning to feel settled after a couple of very very scary years! She is finally beginning to show a response to treatment! (Budesonide/pulmicort 1mg nebules twice daily, Montelukast, sere vent and salbutamol!)
Really need some help and advice now!
