Seen difficult asthma consultant x2 has now passed me onto Manchester clinic. Not sure what to expect.
I hope they read all my notes as other consultant didn't know of any of my allergies, so I am not that confident and can imagine the referral letter. I had a great consultant for 15 years and now 3 years of messing around with meds ( which on reflection is probably why I've needed steroids). As my partner says if ok then why mess around stuff as they know you are brittle. Well exactly I think they don't know that as my notes go way back and had no admissions for ages. I stay at home and manage with nebs when needed and if I needed on call gp. Concerned about having to start all over again with history, various tests etc don't have the time or patience for any of this; as I don't let the asthma rule my life. Don't medics understand that reading up on medical history is important rather than having to retell everything. When I went through really bad time as I was in and out off hospital and I was off work then had to attend occupational Health and eventually was retired at 27 on ill health. Don't want to have to go through all that again as I have manage to return to work part time over the years. Anyone here been to Manchester? What's the team like? What tests? Got to go as a day case don't know what I will be doing arranging transportation and childcare for this.
