Hi everyone, hoping that someone has advice for me.
I have a GP appointment tomorrow (he asked to see me) to discuss the kenalog injections I started a few months ago then stopped after an appointment with his colleague when he was on holiday.
Boring background is (according to consultant) severe persistent asthma with multiple allergies. I have a home nebuliser, relvar ellipta salbutamol fexofenadine zafirlukast omeprazole and ranetidine and epipen. In the last few years I've been pretty much constantly off and on prednisolone. My own GP wanted me to try steroid injection to get better control and avoid the tablets. His colleague says that because I have osteopenia and my bone scan is close to osteoporosis I need to avoid steroids all together.
So for last few weeks I have been muddling along using nebuliser and blue inhaler. My pf is very variable (yesterday went to 150 with my 'best' 410 that's a bit of a drop but the neb always brings it back to 300/350)
I am waiting to see immunology
If my GP recommends restarting the steroid tablets or injections what should I do?
Hope everyone is managing as well as they can in the crazy pollen weather.
Sorry for the too long post
