I've just been catching up on the posts and there are quite a few about nebs at the mo and it got me thinking, so decided i would ask you very knowlegable people. I have just been discharged after 15 days in hospital, which is my longest time in, i know thats not a long time for lots on here but its really knocked my confidence.
Prior to this admission my nebuliser, which was given to me by my con at local hospital, was meant for emergency type situations when inhalers not effective to give additional relief. I was allowed 2 nebs and if not responding had to go to A and E, also had to take pf before and after if no improvement also had to go to A and E. However have been sent home from hospital, they told me to use it more regularly, whenever i felt the need, which at the moment is 2-3 times a day (the hosp. say this is ok). However they didn't update or discuss my protocol before discharge so now i'm a bit confused as i no longer know when i'm using it too much or when to go to hosp. As I said before this admission knowcked me confidence wise and i didn't get to see my usual con as he was on holiday (typical!), and i'm really scared and unsure, still feel i'm struggling but now not sure when to call it a day, don't want to go in and have them say i could just have continued to neb at home but equally don't want to leave it too late either.
Any advice greatfully received
