Well I'm now on month 2 of the Xolair injections and I have to say, so far so blooming good! No Ventolin used now for almost a month, and on 2 x 2 puffs of Foster daily, as well as Montekulast. I've been off oral steroids now for a month and the Citalapran really seems to have kicked in too, so I don't feel a fraction as miserable and anxious as I did. A quick chat with my consultant and he was delighted that I felt so much better and able to do more., i.e: 17000 steps and regularly 12 - 14000, can walk up and down 3 flights of stairs (albeit slowly) so it looks as though I shall be on the objections for a few months before he reviews properly. But the winter is my worst time, so trying not to get too excited.
I've managed a 2 hr shift at work (I'm in hospitality, but it's my own business) last week and it was very tough! So I'm still, after 6 months of hell and 3 long hospital admissions taking things really, really easy.
The hot weather is so good for me, I could easily live in this sort of climate and am really considering that as a future option. Most of the carpets are up and replaced with Oak flooring, all that is helping with less dust and easier to keep clean.
So all in all, it's a good start after a crap year! More info as it happens.
