Had a bad attack nearly two weeks ago which included a 5 day stay in hospital. On discharge I went to see gp who was reluctant to sign me off work as apparently it's only Waitrose! I had to pressure her into signing to which ran out on Friday. I'd had a relatively fair weekend so returned to work yesterday I lasted 1 1/2 hours before I had an attack and came home. Today coughing has increased and knew I couldn't work so went back to the drs. Saw the same dr who just asked what are hospital doing and didn't want to listen to me. She signed me off for the rest of the week but said my main issue is I need to stop coughing and my chest is clear and my sats are good. I asked if we could slow the prednisone taper to maintenance but she said that's for the hospital to do not her however my respiratory nurse at the hospital is on leave till next Tuesday. How long does it take to get over an attack? How do you complain about a dr? Just want to live a normal life!
