I am 23 years old and have been suffering with high blood pressure since having my daughters. Recently i have been sent for a ultrasound which shown my right kidney is scarred. I have been referred to a nephrologist which have said my kidneys are functioning at 40%. I have been given different bp medication and told to go back in 2 weeks to see if there is any improvement if not will need a kidney biopsy. I was told to sign a consent form for biopsy at my first appointment with nephrologist. I am really worried about the biopsy as nothing ends up being straight-forward with anything i ever had done. Is it wise to refuse the biopsy or is there any other treatment? Thankyou in advance.
