Sorry Meeks . . . I bet that is really scary. There will be some others along who can tell you what to expect. I think the information provided by the biopsy is really important for your treatment. There are different types of kidney disease and the biopsy declares what type.
At your rheumy visit . .. tell ALL. Make a list of all the symptoms, meds, proceedures, doctors from the past and a second list of current symptoms. I even provide a list of doctors, addresses and phone numbers. Bring in all your copies of blood work and tests to avoid retesting some of them. The rheumy WILL order tons of blood work, but some of it can be used from former results or it may be helpful to compare the old/ongoing results. There is more info on preparing for a doctor appointment in a post in "Lupus Resources" link is at the end of my signature.
Keep us posted.
