Hi Lily and such a beautiful name,
First let me say, I am, we are welcoming you with open arms.
I know you're scared...hugs..and it is okay. There are other people here who've undergone that testing. I haven't. Hopefully, they can bring you comfort with their experience....
I can copy and past medical information from a website, but I think you just want to know it all is going to alright from one who has experienced it, eh?
They will pop in and welcome, but I would suggest start a post in the medicine or symptom section. With the subject: Kidney Biopsy Info Needed, Help! Or you can do a search in this forum. At the top of the window do you see "search" type "Kidney Biopsy" and it should give you a list of posts....
And know, any time, day or night someone is always cruising the boards looking for answers, looking for comfort. Reading the posts help when you feel alone, scared, unsure or just to say Hey! I am, we are here for you.
Please let us know how the test come out, Lily.
With God, you are in good hands..

Hello Lily -
I just wanted to welcome you. There is nothing I can say that Oluwa hasn't already stated beautifully. My thoughts will be with you as you undergo this test.
hey pearls and olawa thanks a lots you help me a little bit,anyways my test will be done on monday 11feb.ill surely let you know the result,hope something not serious.

You are welcome and I see in another forum others have been able to provide you with their experience.
Needle procedures...the key is to relax and breathe normally. No tensing up. Close your eyes and recall of a wonderful memory, envision a wonderful dream. You'll be alright as Morpheus said in another thread...
Now enjoy yourself, the 11th will be here soon enough. Worry no more.
Hugs and prayers are being heard for you from me.

There you are, still feeling scared and know that is okay...
I just want to point you in the right place. Just in case, to get Saysusie attention, as posts can get lost in the shuffle when new posts are added. I would start a new topic with For Saysusie and follow with your test results, concerns and questions...Okay. Just copy and paste it...
Or you can email her...just click on email at the bottom of any of Saysusie's post or click on her Profile link...and email her from there...

I found this, maybe this will help...
I am not sure if your lab results and the lab ranges are the same in Israel as the USA...
Are you taking your medicines with food? Try soda crackers and sip a bit 7-up or Coca Cola. This may help with your nausea...
I am sorry it is a month wait... I know how you feel. I don't really know much about lab results, but if they don't seem to be rushed, maybe they are not bad..not positive.
Sometimes our fears and our worries never come to be..so worry not. Just take care of yourself, your health....
04-08-2008, 05:19 PM
Don't let the fear overwhelm you. As Oluwa said, try to look up some information about your test results so that you can be informed when you talk to your doctor. I have found that when I am actively researching and participating in my healthcare, I am far less fearful than when I let IT take over. (Which IT trys to do, from time to time :x )
As for the nausea, I suffer from that, to varying degrees, daily. Sometimes, if I drink Ginger Ale or take Ginger tablets (from a health food store) it will help settle my stomach. The club soda and soda crackers also helps.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
04-09-2008, 03:49 PM
Good luck on interpreting your test results. As every body else has said try not worry, the worry causes added stress and that also is not of any help. Keep your faith in God and God bless.
04-09-2008, 04:10 PM
I'm still researching the answers you requested :? I'll get back to you asap.
i hope you have finish your researched soon and am still waiting here,i went to my doc she thought i have uti ,without urine test she prescribe me antibiotic which make my stmach very pain ,i went to her today and she told me to go to emergency in hospital but i think i will go only on tuesday bcoz of work,,,anyways am afraid of hospital hope everythings will be fine,,cya all around
04-13-2008, 08:48 AM
You should do as your doctor says. If the pain is really bad you need to go to emergency even if you do not like hospitals. Let them decide if you stay or go home. You do not know what is wrong with you. It may not waite till tuesday. :) hugs I hope you feel better soon.
hey watever ya name is am really thankfull to you for helping out here,ye i need to go to emergency but i have an appointment on the coming28th of this month and am waiting patiently,bout the pain,for god sake its still bearable can handle it,,,,anyways thanks to you....

I know this is late, but I'm wondering if you ever got my private message answering your questions? I never got a response from you, so I wasn't sure.
At any rate, have you gotten results back from your kidney biopsy yet? The test is usually done to diagnose kidney disease, to evaluate the extent of damage to the kidney, and to determine the cause of protein or blood in the urine (proteinuria and hematuria). It is not common to suffer severe pain at the biopsy site, therefore you should contact your doctor immediately! Also, are you experiencing any abdominal pain, or pain that radiates down into the groin? If so, please contact your doctor immediately.
Mild aching and discomfort in the loin area (due to irritation of the back muscles) is typical and not cause for concern.
Please let us know what your doctor says and how you are doing.
Peace and Blessings
thanks for the concern,ye i got a severe pain in ma left flank,i told ma doc he invites me for us yesterday....i was there the us seems to be normal,,,they saw a blood and told be its where the biopsy is done and its normal,,,he told me if i have a continue pain till thursday i have to contact him....todays tuesday still the pain continue,,hope its over till thursday.anyways i dnt check ma mail and i dunno if i recieved ya mail,anyways thanks and keep in touch,,,millions thanks and hugggs.
07-01-2008, 11:32 AM
I hope that your pain subsides also. Let us know how you are doing.
Peace and Blessings
hey am doin bettter and you know i cant check ma mail means ma private message its written unauthorised..what should i do?anyways thanks for the concern.
peace and huggs.
07-04-2008, 08:31 AM
tell me exactly what the message says when you try to access your private messages.
07-06-2008, 09:24 PM
From what I learned about PM's logging on and checking them..you have to use the regular log in , and not the one that says log in to check private messages.
Once logged in, the just click on you have xxx messages...
Saysusie Lyss may not have gotten your PM also because that is when the site went down....
Lyss the site was down from April 14 to May 9...I know it came back online on the 9th...
Hope this helped with the cross messages and logging on...
Lyss..I am happy you are feeling better....
hii oluwa and saysusie..thanks alots for the concern,,you know i was thinking theres noone in this word who understand ma sickness and problems,,,i used to tell ma frend tey told me its phsycology,,,i used to be so hurt,,at last i found this site where everyone understand me,,thanks again,,,and saysusie i login to check ma privatemail and theres no message,,sorry to say...buts its ok..anywaays thanks all..
goodbless you all and peace.
There are many people here who understand your sickness, and your problems. I'm glad to see you back. Many people told me my problems were psychological, or "in my head" too. It turns out it wasn't. I know how you feel. Anyway,sometimes the internet confuses the heck out of me too. Just keep trying and it will get easier. It's good to hear from you.
07-08-2008, 09:47 AM
I'm sorry you never got the PM. I think that Oluwa was right, I probably posted it during the time that the site went down and it never made it through. At any rate, we are always here to help you whenever you need it, so post where every you like and someone will reply.
Peace and Blessings
