Reflux op

I met with a surgeon in Dec who has said that I have severe Reflux and need surgery to hopefuly stop the reacurent chest infections which is making my asthma worse. I feel like I am now in a catch 22 I have to be well to have surgery and free from steroids but without the surgery I am getting frequent infections. I have had 3 since October and have onlt managed a couple of weeks free of steroids. I am now back on antibiotics 30mg of oral steroids. I spoke with the hospital and having been told I would have surgery end of Jam beging of Feb Ive just heard that they like to have patients seen within 18 weeks which takes me to April. My concerns are I will continue to have episodes of infections and wont be free from steroids. I am really down with all this and fed up of being stuck in the house fearful of catching more bugs or the cold air making my coughing fits worse. I am constantly coughing day and night which is productive green but all my tests for lung function xrays etc are all normal sorry just needed to sound of Elaine

Sound off as much as you like, honey. That's what so good about these pages. Somewhere to have a moan and kick without hurting one's toe or other half.
