  • Sorry you're feeling so unwell. I've had pleurisy recently too its very painful. It seems odd that they would send you home like that, my local hospital is under massive bed pressure too, maybe it's the cuts. Are you feeling any better?

  • thanks for the reply still in pain but breathing a bit better harry

  • I've had pleurisy too and believe you me I'd rather up my pred (am on 20mg maintenance, phyllocontin 900mg twice a day, montelukast, salbutamol, atrovent, fostair and clenil) and take my chances at home. I avoid hospitals with a vengence. Hope you feel better soon

  • thanks for the reply I agree we need hospitals when things get out of hands but I try to sort things out if I can harry
