I am on my cell and can't give you detailed info on your last post but I want to clear up something that I think is most likely the biggest issue for you. Yes, you can still have kids! Many people here have had kids after their diagnosis. You will have to be carefully monitored but you can still be a mom! Try not to freak out over all the stuff you read on the net. Much of it is wrong!
1. can exercise decrease the edema in both my legs?

2. Is it true that i cant have any more kids? is it risky to get pregnant? will my kidney fail easier while pregnant?
- see tgal & others' advice
3. Are researchers researching a cure for lupus?
- yes. just not fast enough for my patience... tic
4. can i do vigorous exercise like normal people?
If you have lupus, you shouldn't without doctor approval. Generally, the more exercise, the better, but lupies "exhaust" faster, and might "flare" from that
hi hopeful soul.
