Hi I have been living with brittle asthma since 1996. I have been on a syringe driver using Bricanyl from then until now, 18 years in total,
also with using steroids and different drugs to keep it under
So after 18 years my new consultant at my local hospital has told me in his opinion It doesn't work so I have to go into hospital under a controlled environment and be weaned off it within a week. I have refused but he has threatened to stopped my supply of drugs to do with the syringe driver and all the things that go with it.
My question is he correct
This consultant over the past 18months has also asked me reduce steroids 15mg to 10mg by cutting out 1mg each week.
I got down to 12mg but on doing this I became very disorientated I kept on stumbling to the floor to which I received several cuts and bruises. I then returned back to 15gm.
Then he got me to do the same again this time 1mg per month
My wife took photo's of the cuts and bruises this time ,they have take a long time to heal.
So why should I be made to supper this because of HIS. OPINION
