I know there was a discussion on this a while ago, and the general consensus you could give blood while taking most asthma meds except pred, but I wondered if anyone had been told they couldnt donate any more?
I went to donate a couple of weeks ago, having had a couple of years off when asthma was wonky, but got turned down then - nurse thought asthma wasnt good enough, although I reckon its pretty good at the moment, but maybe shouldnt have gone in mid summer, first thing in morning and walked there. But I've just had a letter advising me to stop donating at all. I'm a bit shocked, really. When I talked to the nurse at the session, she said to just wait a bit and there was nothing to stop me donating in future as long as not SOB, and as athma can vary so much it seems a bit strange to just have a 'never again' thing.
I know in the grand scheme of things its not a big deal, but I wondered if others have had this?
