I am new to the boards. I have to admit that i was the biggest skeptic of H1 being as it is on huge overload on all news. I, however, got H1 and ended up on a vent. I came off the vent a little over two weeks ago, spent another number of days in the hospital and have been home a week now.
I'm wondering if anyone here has had H1 that also has asthma. It is taking me forever to get better. I am normally hospitalized a few times a year for URIs wiht my asthma, but nothing like this. I am still on 40mg of prednisone and nebbing (duoneb alt with albuterol) every two-ish hours around the clock. My peak flows never made it back up to 50% prior to discharge, and are still below 200/500. My pulmo said to call if I was getting worse or more so if i get fevers. I'm not really worse, but just having a heck of a time. I have thought about calling and checking in-but I'm not worse, just not better, and i don't want to increase my steroids.
Wondering if anyone has any insight or experiene with this combo of ailments?
