Medications Begin

Standard

The kidney biopsy went well and the results showed what we expected. The plan is to increase medication then taper down as hopefully the kidney function starts to improve and Lupus calms down.

Getting the news was expected, but still hard as I am pretty sensitive to medication I think due to my small frame. I call myself a one-percenter. If it has a small chance of happening…even one percent it happens to me. Fever blister, infertility, hair loss, eye inflammation, dry mouth- me, me, me.

So the journey to start 25mg of steroids daily (a lot!! get ready moon face) and 2000mg of Cellcept…an immune system blocker so mask up begins today.

My kidneys are worth it!
