captured by green men /women again this week in Costa del NHS from Mon til today ....
struggled to increase my peak flows and change from nebs to inhalers ... you know, the usual ...
more SOB than usual and needed oxygen longer than usual as well ??
CXR showed infection that i was treated for last week, not cleared and also new changes, so new course antibiotics - again! which am still taking on discharge home today, and need repeat xray in 4-6 weeks time.
started on amoxicillin, yet i NEVER respond to it, if anytthing it makes me worse, which i told them 4 times, they never listened, kept dismissing me. i kept saying i always have to have augmentin +/- clarythromycin. luckily i have a stock of augmentin at home!
also, was local hospital as bluelighted to resus - AGAIN! so they liased with my resp consultant, new treatment plan which i am not convinced about...
1. wean pred 5mg per week until stop.
2. not to restart pred unless PF <200
3. continue on ciclesonide inh at double dose
4. salbutamol home neb PRN for emergency use only
**my best PF 550 so i am concerned bout not restarting pred <200 and also everytime i wean down pred i end up readmitted to resus :S argh!! so pleanty to discuss at next appt on 24/3 grr!!
at least everyone agrees on my individual emergency plan! haha
