Im seeing consultant tomorrow and im just getting some pointers together to ask him as my last appointment he told me i wasnt asthmatic (have been on asthma meds for 20yrs) and i probably have chronic bronchitis (due to my many chest infections in winter for the last 5 yrs)
My ct was normal my breathing tests although low were within normal . My peak flow is between 200-300 (my normal best is 450) ive been on Doxicyiline 100g and pred steroid 30-20-10-5-2 mg over last few weeks. Consultant wanted me to have had nothing for two weeks prior to appoint tomorrow but last Wed i started again with symptoms of infec so gp told me to re start meds again.
His letter came last week saying i had idiopathic simple bronchitis and needed no steroids and only occasional ab.
My infections never go into my upper airways or right lung only ever go to my left lung - what can i say to him re this? Gp listened to it last week and upper was clear but crackles down on left again. Any advice will be appreciated (im a never smoker and during summer im normally infection free but come autumn winter no matter what wham ) thanks judith xxx
