Hi Swim and Greenacres and all the rest of you, thanks for your replies. Swim i have not tried the drug you have suggested but i will ask my doctor next time i see her, i take a steroid based inhaler called Sybicort + i take prednisalone steroids daily, i have been diagnosed severe asthmatic but touch wood my asthma has been under control for a couple of years now and we have been able to lead a normal sort of life, they say all bad things happen in 3,s well Asthma, PC, now they tell me my blood pressure and Chol have gone through the bloody roof well i reckon thats my 3 done.
Life sets you these challenges and we have to get over them as im sure we all will with a little bit of help from our friends. Really glad ive found this forum its helped me a great deal. By the way Swim i hope your daughters ok now. Hope you all are keeping well will be posting again soon.
All the best.

Hi Mike:
Yes, sometimes things do happen in 3's. Thanks for replying to my post re, Early Christmas Gift.
We've got a few things in common, except I'm a little older at 59. I too am asthmatic. Allergic Asthma, they term it in my case. Along with high cholesterol and diabetes. But, from what you wrote, you're getting a good handle on them. I take Singular, Nasonx and Zertec to control the allergies and asthma.
You said your surgery is only a couple of days after mine (Dec. 6), when's the exact date?  You can pull my member profile for my email address - since we're both sorta on the same bus to the station, drop me a note with your email address and we can stay in touch, plus, my family tree began in the UK and maybe you can steer me towards some contacts.
Hang on my friend, we'll get through this together and pretty much at the same time.
