Hi dear people
I really hope that everyone is doing well this winter
Iv not been too well myself. .last week I had swollen lymph nodes on my neck and lump type things on my head.. lots of sleepless nights
Coincidently, i had a check up appointment with my rheumatologist. He told me i was quite unwell and had infection.
During the course of the week, i felt alot better but developed a red swollen cheek (looks dreadful and makes me feel ill)
Today my rheumatologist called me to see him. He told me my kidneys were leaking protein and i have to have a kidney biopsy as soon as possible.
Quite a big shock for me as i felt better
Also it is my final year of uni. Last few days of this semester
He told me not to go uni. I would still go but my father is so worried as he came with me to the appointment for the first time, he don't let me go alone.
I know he loves me alot but the over protectiveness is getting to me. He keeps telling me its all okay but his all worried
Also i should mention that even though the biopsy is so common. Im beyond way scared
I can't hold my breath or stay still when someone tells me too. Plus i most definitely cannot urinate when i know its being observed.
However, im keeping very strong and infront of friends and family. i am beyond brave
Any help and advice as usual will be most appreciated.
Also is the biopsy a treatment or a test. Iv done research and seems like a test. The dr didn't mention that.
