Hello - I'm wrting this to try and help my father in law. He has been diagnosied with asthma, aged 60 yrs and nothing seems to be working. The doctors have given inhalers, steroids and now want to try him on a new medication which, as a side effect, will scar his lungs and liver. Sorry i can't be specific about names of drugs but he is very ill and seems confused himself. He is, at present, unable to live a normal life and we don't seem to be getting very far gaining info from the hospital - nobody seems to be able to help us any further. Anybody out there with any ideas? All suggestions welcome. Thanks for taking the time to read this e mail - Helen.
