Hi everyone, my Dad was admitted to hospital last week because of high potassium levels in his regular blood tests for diabetes, his kidneys aren't filtering. He received the diagnosis yesterday after kidney biopsy of ANCA MPO Vasculitis and was started on steroids last night and starting intravenous chemotherapy today.
I live in India and my Dad is in the UK, firstly, I can't seem to find anything on ANCA MPO vasculitis and secondly, my Dad has rebuffed my offers to come over saying that the Doctor has told him he won't need anyone to look after him while he is receiving treatment.
I'm so worried and have a picture in my mind of him sitting sad and lonely and ill at home with no-one there.
I would greatly appreciate advice as to what effect the chemo & steroids will have (he's having 6 lots of chemo every 2 weeks) and also why my google search doesn't show anything under ANCA MPO Vasculitis?
Thank you so much in advance for any insights you can offer
