I am pretty concerned about my son at the moment, he was finally diagnosed as asthmatic in August (after months of being told he has bronchiolitis, viral wheeze and various other things). I still get told repeatedly by registrars that they don't diagnose asthma in under 5s! He has now been put on Seretide 125 one puff, twice per day in addition to his montelukast granules as 600mcg of clenil a day wasnt working. After 4 weeks his wheezing still doesn't seem to be under control. He has just spent the weekend in hospital ending up in the HDU as the hourly nebulisers were not making him any better he was put onto IV salbutamol. We weren't due to see his consultant again until February but this has been brought forward to two weeks time as they are concerned his asthma was so bad this time.
He has an appointment for ENT next month as he has a number of other symptoms which after almost a year and various tests are now being attributed to very large adenoids. My son hasn't slept through the night for a year and a half now since he was one year old. Most nights it can be anything between 3-10 times he wakes up. He drinks massive amounts of water at one point was 4 litres a day but we have cut this down a little now to about 3 litres.
I was wondering if there is anyone else on here with an asthmatic child who has had their adenoids removed and willing to share their experiences.
