I had my appoinment with my new consultant. He looked over my spirometry results and other test results, and declared..... Yes you have asthma, brittle asthma!
Wow, I was just so impressed! Can you detect a hint of sarcasm here?!
Having been in itu last week, and coming very close to not making it, I was hoping for a bit more support.
Why does it seem if the actual day when you have your appointment, if you are feeling ok, well, by that I mean not blue, wheezy, or generally half dead, do consultants and their minions never seem concerned when you tell them how bad it is on a day to day basis?
I asked about my concerns regarding finishing the course of pred, as I nearly always seem to have a significant drop in PF and problems a couple of days later, his words of wisdom, you can DECREASE your symbicort if you feel ok! Really? So that will make me feel better?!
Maybe I should have said see you in a couple of days when your plan goes wrong and Im admitted again, but dont want to tempt fate.
I left feeling a bit frustrated!
Sorry rant over!!
