right, well i am in a bit of a confuffle .. i'll try and expalain .... (here we go!)
right i had an attack biut 4 weeks ago which landed me in ITU for 3 days then a further 10days on a ward with 2 splats in between, one due to stupid nurse sprayin airfreshner!!! Anyway whilst in there i stupidly hurt my knee .. hard to belive sum one can do that while sittin in hospital in bed .. i m a natural blonde!!!
Anyway was discharged came home and was soo wheezy thinking i had another chest infection went to the docs on the thurs (discharged on tues afternoon), where they decided that i need nebs ASAP and after tehm not working and wheeze vvv auddible decided i needed lil green men ... pleaded not to go but i was over ruled!! Anyway this attack was different nd they gave me IM adrenaline.. never been given that before but it helped!! i was then kept infor another week , and i am gettin there slowly now.
Right my questions are ...
what does adrenaline do? why might i have been given it?
I am being seen at RBH, but the local hosp is now making me see old cons and chest clinc .... not sure why??? as well as RBH
I am now taking phyllincontin 225mg x2 a day after they started it on 1st admission stopped it and then put me back on it after aminophyline drip ... BUT bloods on discharge said that they couldnt detect any theophylline at all !!!??? not sure y any ideas why??
also bit off topic but as to my knee which locked and whenb i twisted it to straighten it, it 'poped' , is v painful, xray was clean ... minimal swelling but vvv painful can 'hobble' on it painfully and reange of movemnt it limited ... it no better now but my whole leg/ankle has swollen up and oits still as painful to walk on ... anyideas???
sorry for the long windedness of this post .. but i dunno whether i am cumin or going!!!
hope your all ok
