I used to post on here a lot but I forgot my password and I didnt get round to resetting it!
Anyway, I am on Prednisolone 30 mg maintenance dose, Atrovent inhaler 4 puffs twice a day, Salbutamol 4 puffs 4 times a day, Seretide 250 2 puffs four times a day and Singulair 10 mg nightly.
My asthma is poorly controlled and my GP is arranging a loan of a home nebuliser.
Ive got a chest infection which just isnt going away at all. Ive had 4 different anti-biotics but nope its not cleared up!
I saw a paediatric chest cons last january and that was my last out patient contact. I was due to be seen by an adult cons in May 2006 but no appointments have materialised since constantly being rearranged so when I am admitted into hospital the drs think I am going to be seen soon only for my appts to be rearranged! So my appointment is now for august 2007.
So much has changed since my last appointment, at admissions my drs thought I might have brittle asthma but this hasnt been investigated further.
I am frequently on rescue pred courses of 60mg and while I am waiting for a nebuliser I end up in the treatment room having nebs on a weekly basis. My schoolwork has suffered greatly I have had to pretty much take a gap year and I am going back to my A Levels in September full time.
My optimal peak flow should be 420
My best over the last 6 weeks is 240
At worst PF is 100.
