i have had another hospital stay and again been spoken to about the need to rest my lungs however the thought of being ventilated scares me so much and i dont know if i can verbally agree to it even when i know im exhausted. its obvious no one would want to be knocked out like this but am i worrying over something that will help or is it normal to feel like this upset about it when ive been told it will definately help me? my asthma is so unstable at the minute that i feel like i cant even step outside of my front door and even climbing up the stairs is cause for me to have to use an inhaler halfway when im like this, so should i just give up and accept i may need this medical procedure in the future or will the doctors just do it if i dont agree (or im too scared or unable to agree)? its made me very nervous as if the doctors cant operate on my knee because its not safe under a general, how can they say that being ventilated is safe? im actually very worried about this incase it does need to happen.
