I've got quite bad asthma (15 admissions in the last year, 60mg of pred a day for 9 months, on everything else going, on a salicylate free diet, etc etc even doing some research studies to see if they will help) but I have been offered a trial of sub-cut bricanyl. Which I am thrilled about as I have seen lots of people on here who have responded really well to it. But I am having issues.
My GP surgery say they cannot provide the pumps/needles etc and the district nurses need to do it, however the district nurses say they have never given this sort of treatment before, and they hospital should be sorting it out. The hospital say that the community have all of the syringe drivers so they cant help. I am soo frustrated!
So I was wondering who supports you with your sub cut stuff? I know it will be different in each health care trust but it would be useful to know so I can 'nag' the right people! I am sick of icky hospital food!
