New diagnosis

Hi, my hubby is newly diagnosed in UK. Was given a new inhaler and tablets to thin mucus and that's it, no referral to hospital, no tests. He is very overweight and currently waiting for a gastric bypass. I just feel that docs are not bothered because of his weight. He has has asthma all his life but contacted legionnaires disease last year on holiday and has been a lot worse s Ince wnith breathing. Anyone think he should be having more tests??
