Am wondering how many others out there have a constant battle with doctors and hospitals on their childs asthma?
My son is 7 years old. He began having broblems at 6 months, the doctors put it down to a viral induced wheeze for 3 years. Even keeping an asthma diary which showed triggers etc I constantly had to fight for support. everytime ge had a good 3 months his inhalers would be stopped or reduced causing flare-ups and hospital admissions, constant chest x-rays for them to try and prove it was chest infections rather than asthma (they nearly always show no infection). in his life so far he has been admitted to hospital 15 rimes caused by asthma. He's been in twice last week! His consultant didn't even recognise us and when we go to outpatients have to take a copy of the letter from last appointment as he can never remember what he done last time. He's had 3 x rays in the past two mnths, third time lucky as the thrid one shoewed a chest infection whereas the others were clear!As parents we have to fight this horrible disease, we should not have to fight the doctors as well!
