Just wanted to guage what people are doing when they cant have the Flu jab because of oral steroids
This time of year is always hard as we know but due to my ongoing steroid taking, on and off for the last month or so, they have cancelled my appt because the jab will not take effect whilst on steroids
Been told to have seven clear days before having the jab but in the real world where Asthmatics live, that isnt always possible is it!
Have had a long lastting cold recently now have a persistent cough in the mornings and even though I have a Neb and Oxygen I still needed that boost at the weekend when everything started heading downhill and I was just feeling ""Done In"" so out came the Prednisolone!
Is there an optimum time to have the jab as Dec Jan and Feb are classed as Winter months? Should I hang on in there and try for seven clear days then have the jab or just try to keep well on the steroids. I really hate the bloatedness, increased appetite for rubbish and the bags of energy which prevent my sleep each night BUT they give me respite and my God I needed that so bad at the weekend when I felt so low it was awful
Any advice on how you are all coping would be great
