Newly Diagnosed with Lupus Nephritis...very scared!
I have been living with lupus since I was 17. I am now 28 and have managed to maintain the disease very well with mostly skin and joint problems. This summer, after some proteinuria I underwent a kidney biopsy which showed class 3 nephritis. It was caught very early and my docs feel they can stop the renal involvement and put the lupus into remission with a six month Cytoxan treatment. Does anyone have any advice? How were the side effects? Did the lupus improve?
I am very scared! Any advice would be so GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
