I'm a few weeks away from my next consultant check up. Last time I saw him, he said that if the asthma wasn't ""under control"" the next time I saw him, he'd be thinking about injections. This isn't something I'm keen on!
The asthma is certainly a lot better than it was. I'm hoping the improvement will be enough to hold him off taking me to the next step (5). I'm using ventolin a lot less than I was but still need it a few times a day. My peak flow varience is also better than it was.
Is ""under control"" determined in the same way on the higher BTS steps as the lower ones? How is he likely to work out if I'm in control or not?
If I have an idea now, it will help me deal with the appointment when it comes. Also, my GPs quite good so if there is a possibiliy they'll take me to step 5, it'll help me if I chat with him before the appointment.
