Hi everybody hope you are all well.
We've just come back froman appointment with Holly's new consultant and I am really unhappy.
Holly gets flixotide 125 2 puffs twice daily with serevent two puffs mornng and one at night. She gets singulair morning and night and citirizine in the morning. After all this she's still really struggling. and having to take pred a lot too just now.
Explained the last few weeks to the consultant and also explained how much ventolin shes getting just now, shes been taking it regularly but got it down to about 6 puffs every 4 hours. He looked over her notes and said that theres no way she can still be struggling after all that medication and he has decided that shes exageratting her symptoms and has reccomended a refferal to a child psychologist.
I've got to admit I lost it a bit and asked how she could exagerate her symptoms when she ends up in hospital so often. I mean really she's only 4. I really did take offence because I know theres not a miracle cure but I just wanted her symptoms more under control before she starts school in August. I explained this to him and said that I want her to be able to take part in all the things other children do at school and his answer was that the psychologist will help her come to terms with the things she cant do.
Was stressed out before but now I'm stressed out and confused.
Does anyone else's child see a psychologist
Thanks and sorry for the rant
