To me the 3 most important aspects of asthma were to keep out of hospital to keep off steroids and to manage life to some extent but had a phone call from brompton saying i should stay there maybe for over 2 weeks!? just to try to find out what is wrong with me?

Anyone had something like that? What are they going to do over such a long time? Feel rather scared atm.

But thanks for any ideas

It's so great that you are now under the wing of the Brompton, they really are the Rolls Royce of respiratory medicine, and people write how well looked after they feel there. I hope they get to bottom of things for you and get it all to settle down. Keep us informed how you are getting on.


Thanks you took my nerves down a bit and i like ur expression of rolls royce but still a bit scared as with every admission its difficult to convince them that i can go home so that never really comes


I have had this exact admission myself. And it is fantastic. You are allowed to leave the hospital at some points so I didn't get too bored. The consultant visits you almost daily. It is valuable.

Go for it.
