Sorry this is just a rant here, when I was discharged from a stay at my local hospital in Dec due to a fairly severe attack, my consultant said he'd see me in January, no appointment ever came despite myself and my gp ringing pretty constantly because although I've managed to stay out of hospital I've still not been great. Finally relieved an appointment yesterday; for June!
They just told me back in October my asthma is brittle, I've been in and out of hospital despite being on 40mg of pred etc. I've got to the point where I've just lost faith in my consultant now. It's almost like he thinks "well I don't why we can't control it, so just live with it"
I was told I was being referred to Brompton and that's not appearing to have happened either.
And yet when I do see him and question him on things he just manages to turn it round and makes you feel stupid, and my dad has been with me before and after he left my dad said, "I'm not really sure what just happened there" so I know it's not just me (which I am sure is what my dad thought before lol).
I've been tempted many times to find out if I can see someone else, but whenever your admitted as an emergency you see him or his team before discharge so I worry what would happen the next time I am admitted.
Anyway I feel a bit less like I want to scream now! Sorry for such a whine!
