Hi, i have just joined this community. My husband came out of hospital yesterday after an 8 day stay, starting with an ambulance to resus then hdu then the respiratory ward. He has been diagnosed with eosinophilic asthma, his eosinophil count was 2.7. He is on a steroid inhaler twice a day and we are to return to clinic in a few weeks. He has developed cough syncope and passes out a few times a day (it's improved as it was a few times an hour) he had to surrender his driving licence for 6 months, he has no sense of smell and is constantly producing extremely sticky mucus. He is very fit and active normally, thinks nothing of going on a 10k run. Will he return to normal life, he has been ill since Christmas and off work since then, no one listened in the few hospital trips we had last month and it took a 999 call and paramedic arriving to him having a silent chest for him to get help. I am so scared as he had been so poorly I just want to know if this can be managed and him not ending up with frequent admissions. Sorry for the long post, this is all very new to us.
