  • Hi . Had the same problem whem I was in. Its the last thing you need when you are struggling for air. Glad you are improving otherwise. I went back on the steroids last night so hoping that will give me a boost. Take care.

  • It the fact I couldn't get it made it worse I started to panic abit but I was ok panicked for nothing have a good day

  • When I was in hospital in March they took my medication apart from my Ventolin. I didn't need it very often as I was on nebulizer but as the nurse said, its there if you need it. Can't see why they took yours. Anyway let's hope you get home on Thursday.

  • Hey great news that you had a good night..i hope all goes well with the docs today. I had the same problem re not being written up for the correct medications at the right times, its really bad that the basics are not not surprised you were fuming. Its dreadful. Im in and out of hospital and it happens all the time. I take my own & keep it in my handbag, its not right, but neither is the doctors not writing you up for what you need. Take care, do let us know how you get on with the docs round..Helen x
