    Hy Lyss
    I've been for two already, it was just a short procedure, where they inserted a needle through my back and extract small pieces of my kidney.
    I had to stay in bed for about 24 hrs after that.

    some pain and discomfort after but not much. U'll be ok.
    I intend to live forever, so far so good

    Hey, Lyss,
    You were due for your biopsy today. How did it go? Please post when you can. Your friends here are thinking of you.

    My fiancee had one done (she's in stage 4 kidney nephritis) and she said the actual THOUGHT of the procedure was worse than the procedure itself.

    She had a little discomfort and had to be in bed for a day but other than that, it was pretty basic.

    Like everyone else said, they insert a needle and test a very small portion of kidney tissue to measure what kind of scar tissue percentage there is (thereby figuring the rate and progression of kidney disease or damage).

    Default hi

    hey susan thanks for worrying bout me,anyways my biopsy was not done bcoz the doctor says it will not be necessary rite now coz i undergo urine and blood test before the day am suppose to do biopsy and the kidneys working well and all other test was normal and blood and protein are much less than before so he wants to wait for 1months if its serious i will need to undergo biopsy,anyways ifi will go thru the test i will let yu know the results....cya for the time being hope everythings will be good with g-d grace.

    Lyss,
    So glad to hear your kidneys are doing well and the test was cancelled. May the blessing continue for you.
