Hello, I was just needing a bit of advice really.
I've been off work for about 2 months now- got taken into A&E a few weeks ago, with the accompanying blue lights, but luckily managed to get discharged!Since then I've been at home on the usual steroids(still on 40mg) and regular nebs. Several chest infections later I'm now finally on the mend and down to 3-4 nebs/day so hopefully back to work shortly!I'm due to see resp. consultant next month- when I last saw them they said they may refer me back to RBH to ??consider methotrexate as I've been on high dose steroids for over 2 years now- I was just wondering what happens really if they do decide to put me on it. I was under the RBH previously but was discharged about 3 years ago, since then my asthma has been pretty bad. Any advice would be gratefully received.Sorry I'm rambling on a bit!!!the other queries I had was that for about 6 months now I've had quite severe swelling around my eyes that doesn't go during the day- my GP thinks it's due to steroids, just wondering if anybody else has had the same??It just adds to my lovely moon face appearance and being about a million stone overweight-nice!!
Lastly-(promise!)I was also seen last year for very enlarged glands- had a scan etc and was told by the consultant that they are due to having been quite unwell(last year)and the long term steroids and eventually they will go back to normal- a year on they're still huge- again just wondering if anybody else has had this?
many thanks, sorry to go on a bit
