Hmm so have odd dilemma - can anyone advise or maybe suggest who to ask about this?
Somehow I ended up with 2 good consultants at different places! v lucky I know, and I thought it might work out well, even if it is a bit greedy lol. One is at RBH and the other is a really good asthma cons who is not NHS officially so has more time for me/some good ideas.
It was going ok seeing two consultants even if a bit odd (not even as though I'm that bad, just weird!)
But now - after listening to what I said about having better control sometimes but it being too much up and down - St Mary's cons wants me to try 40mg of pred for 3 weeks to see if that knocks things on the head. If it doesn't, he says there are limited options. He does think it's asthma but very atypical.
Then went to RBH on Mon as they wanted to see me when bad and I had a bronchitis thing - though wasn't as bad as it had been when I got there, of course! They said 30mg pred short course, so cue confusion - I told them I'd been prescribed 40mg for three weeks by other cons. They don't think it's asthma - well maybe they do, I'm not really sure tbh as they said yes, some asthma in letter but now no?!
On Monday I saw a new reg at RBH who wants to get things sorted for me, but says I have to choose RBH or St Mary's by the time I go back to RBH this Tues - both are good but given the set-up etc they can't work together and I need consistency, which is a fair point.
Only problem is - they both have pros and cons but also a completely different approach to things and apparently different ideas about what's going on, and as they are both very good at what they do I really have no idea which of them is right!
Sorry for ramble but while I know I have to make the decision myself in the end, I feel like I want some advice...can't work out if there's anyone who'd be able to help though! Anyone have any suggestions?
