Hello! My 2 year old son had his first ever episode 3 weeks ago triggered by pneumonia. Since then he had 3 different antibiotics to clear it , 4 lots of oral steroids (Max gap in between taking them 10 days) and only 3 days without taking salbutamol every 4 h ( 4,6, 10 pumps depending on the days) first 2 attacks were triggered by chest infection , third one by a regular cold (only took 2 days from runny nose to 10 pumps every h and hospitalisation. He wasn't diagnosed with astma officially, got given clenil modulite 50 mg twice a day 8 days ago) we got discharged home yesterday after 2 night stay without any change in medication. After me having a meltdown in hospital they did X-Ray on his chest but failed to tell me about results. We have been told to see go regularly (we've seen gp 2x every week anyway since it started! ) twice gp rang ambulance as his stats were poor ( especially oxygen levels! He was turning blue on one occasion ) in hospital they treat me as overprotective mother making a fuss over nothing. I've been told by a consultant that in very rare occasions they refer to a specialist and if he is back with another attack soon they won't do anything different. Is it really nothing else I can do? Any advice will be appreciated as I'm on my wits ends 😔 Thank you
