I'm 19yrs old..I first got sick in 2004 when I was diagnosed with Kidney disease which later I found out was from the Lupus. I took predisone and I was also given a few treatments of Solumedtrol drip...the IV drips over an hour so you'll be there for a bit..it gives you a pretty bad taste in your mouth like metal so bring STRONG gum even though it doesn't help too much and that taste will last about 2 hours after..It also causes you to bruise worse than you normally would.It gives you bad heartburn so get good meds for that and avoid greasy food & the blood sugar levels go nuts so watch the sugar.
I found this website gives tips and has comments from people who get the drips pretty
Tell your daughter to keep her head up...I will be thinking about her i hope the drip
helps & I will pray for her.
