Maddie has had 2 courses of pred in the last 10 days. Shes poorly again, after being off the pred for 2 days.
I took her to the gp surgery this morn but could only see a locum dr. I explained what has been going on etc to which the dr asked ""Does she have an inhaler?""!!!!
When id finished telling the dr exactly what meds my little girl is taking( Budesonide nebs, Montelukast, Serevent, Ventolin, Antihists!) she listened to her chest. Shes evidently wheezing, coughing and struggling.
The dr hasnt given her any more pred as she's concerned that it will 'stunt her growth'! Shes given her antibiotics and told me to come back in a weeks time!!
Im so worried.
The antibiotics take approx 48hrs to take effect! What happens in the meantime?!
What would you do? The locum obviously doesnt know Maddie. Our normal GP knows the situation and is really helpful. Its the first time ive been faced with an unhelpful GP
We are due to go away this weekend so I asked advice as to what I should do with regards to meds etc while away. The only advice the GP gave was to 'cancel the trip'!
What would you do with regards to everything?? Do you think the treatment shes been given is ok?
