    Default Lupus Nephritis

    Hi everyone hope you all are well. I was diagnosed with lupus nephritis just over a year ago ( i was 24) i didn't suffer with lupus before this so i was really scared when they told me.
    the doctors started me on cyclophosphamide straight away for 3 months as they thought if they delayed and tried other medication first i may end up with too much kidney damage as i developed symptoms early before any damage had really taken place so i guess im lucky that way.
    i now take other medication every day and luckily i have not had a flare up since it first started. the doctors are really pleased with my progress.
    i hope this will boost the spirits of anyone just diagnosed with this condition as it isn't always bad, just think positive and keep smiling.[/quote]
