went for my asthma cons review last thurs. my cons was off sick himself last week so i see his registrar instead. was due to have the 2nd xolair injection only it was 2 days after my 25 day stay in ITU/HDU and was still unwell with pain etc and recovering. also, after the first dose i also reacted and so after speaing with both the registrar and the xolair nurse and the asthma nurse - not my normal asthma nurse, it was decided to give me a month to recover and then restart the xolair trial from the bginning :S which i am unsure about. i tn ased if the xolair didnt work, which myself and the cons had both agreed previously we didnt think it will as i am more irrtant triggered than allergen if that makes sense ?? then what is the next step ofretet o be considered - methotrexate. i am certainly not happy bout that as i know that to be chemoptherapy drug i used to give to my onology children in work so more than aware of its side effects
i looked at her in horror!
anyways i asked her bout the brompton and shsaid they couldnt refer me as they dont do cons to cons referrals money reasons so gp would need to - and ask to be referred to difficult asthma protocol unit.
so i spoke withgp who is referring me urgently, i have to ring gp today with name of cons i wish to see, and i am now being seen by them at the RBH, difficult asthma unit at the end of july (going to wales the next 3 weeks otherwise would have been sooner) so that they can sort me out, discuss ntreatments and arrange an elective admission. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!
