My son Fin, diagnosed and hospitalised in September with severe lupus nephritis is attempting to get to the fitness level he was at before he became ill. He was training in his bone 6days a week and racing national and internationally.
Is there any reason why he CAN'T get back to form?? He feels better every week and is planning on getting back to normal. He is being watched weekly by the renal team and is on reducing steroids. He is on mycophenolate and IV rituximab.
His haemoglobin will definitely affect his aerobic ability and it is creeping upbeat at 10g at the moment. But it could normalise eventually??
He is 18 and incredibly optimistic about his future. That's just the way he is!
I just wondered if anyone else has heard of people with SLE and lupus nephritis managing to do well at sport.
