Since I seem to moan a lot about appts, just thought I'd say that I had a really good one this morning! Last time I made a bit of a mess of it all but though I was really nervous beforehand this time, I managed to have a sensible (and long - over an hour!) conversation with my cons where we covered a lot of ground.
Apparently I still baffle him lol. I am officially weird hehe.
He agrees with me that the Symbicort seems to be working and that I should carry on with it. I wasn't sure whether he would so this is good. I do have to try giving up the Ventolin till next time as he feels I may be using it so much that it's aggravating things; I'll use the Atrovent instead.
My PF technique is wrong apparently and might be causing falsely high results. Also need more LF tests to check a low result and see if it's lungs or technique. And CT scan.
For once I managed to remember to say and ask everything I wanted, and felt like I was getting good in depth answers (also he talks about the science and doesn't simplify it which I find interesting, plus I appreciate being treated like an intelligent person (my GP does the same).
So...yeah..pretty good! Hopefully next time will be as well. It's nice to have someone consider non-screwed up head possibilities, and he hasn't mentioned the abnormal awareness again. He thinks it's asthma but I jus don't play by the usual rules (always have to be different lol).
Hope anyone else with appts has found them equally useful.
