Ok so here is a question for you all!
I go every now and again to Greece to visit my family (i grew up there) and stay for long periods of time- usually around 3 weeks.
Now i dont consider my asthma to be that bad (on early stages of step 3 treatment) and have never had a hospital admission. HOWEVER i have had a lot of NEAR hospital experiences, but thankfully nothing more than that.
My question is:
When i go to greece again, how should i prepare? The problem is i go to a VERY small island and for some very strange reason hardly ANYONE in greece suffers from asthma- especially adult onset. if i were to need help like an ambulance for example, there isnt one. in fact there is nothing.
just to show you what i mean and so that you can get a clear picture, go to google maps and type in Antiparos, greece and look at the map. its a small island. now if i need help, THE ONLY HELP AVAILABLE APART FROM GP is a helicopter that comes from ATHENS (the capital) and picks you up and takes you back to athens to a hospital.
So.... would it be worth telling my GP about this and sorting out some sort of asthma plan? (dont have one at the moment). Never been on pred, but maybe should get some ""just in case"" ? and last but not least, when i am down there should i maybe have a Neb as home just in case?? i know that i dont need one while in the UK but if i need one on the island, then who is responsible to give me one- my GP here or the local greek doctor??
sorry for the long post everyone! looking forward to your opinions!
