I just got out of hospital 2 days ago after a 3 week stay and my last hosp admission was in August before this for 2 weeks ist time ice admission 2nd time icu informed and visited on ward so i was rather sick I came home early as difficulties with one of my children but i feel so drained, emotional , still needing ventolin regularly despite been on max treatment. Im concerned i still havent got grips with it. They say I have severe brittle Asthma and ??? vcd too, due to hoarseness of voice but i think that more down to all steroid inhalers i was taking, I had investigations a yr ago re VCD and all was clear. I so confused n frustarated my family life is complexed as i have two children with additional news work full time though off on sick leave at min etc. They say my triggers are pollen, Stress, ? Animal dander, cold weather I know aerosols and chemicals also can set me off too. How long does it normally take to recover. I am currently on 60mg oral prednsolone, seretide 2000 daily, montelukast, im on fexofenidine for allefies also a nasal spray for rhinitis, salbutamol 2 puffs x 4 daily and then as when needed, i now on bone meds and calcium tabs. they just stopped flixotide as seretide now at max level. Iam new to having it so severe. i ad as a child but mild but seems to have got worse the past 4- 5 yrs. in the past 2 years i have had 4 -5 admissions and close monitoring with gp practice last too so severe almost didnt make it. any advice would be handy. also they suggested a spirometry test again ? is this normal despite having all tests done previously? Sorry for all the questions, but feeling a tad down n coming to terms with adjusting to kife back home after being so ill
