Hi new to the forums but need help thought hospital would have given me something like a spacer as I can't take the deep breath any more due to the operation I just had but no help from there my gp probably will call me tomorrow sometime but I need to take my inhaler and I can't do the deep breath in so for me I'm thinking I must need a spacer or something so I can have it in the spacer and inhale with more shorter breaths to the one deep breath and as I haven't been issued anything how can I use my inhaler until I get one hopefully tomorrow?
Just come out of hospital from lung o... - Asthma UK communi...
Thank you all for your replies you all have confirmed one thing which is the hospital was in error by not issuing a spacer when required what I done was used my husband to help me like when I was a child and my mum use to control the inhaler when I was happy with a breath I tapped my husband and he would press to release not perfect but I still got and my gp knows I have dealt with medical problems like this before and he will issue me one no questions asked and apologise for the hospital wasting my time.
Thanks again for all your help
Just got off the phone to my Dr and I've already in the first few seconds been given a spacer as the volumeatic is no longer available but ontop of that he has sided with me on everything else I raised to the point alerts and warnings are going on my file about this hospital so asthmatics of the world we just won a war against a hospital that treat us like we know nothing about our own health and thanks to a good Dr proofing we know more than ever
