Thanks everyone for all the info. My first appt. with the new doc is on the 30th and then they will schedule the biopsy after that. I'm more worried about my results than the actual procedure itself. I'm afraid they will tell me I have kidney damage. I'm afraid of the new medications they would use and all the side effects. Are the side effects of the cytoxin etc. as bad as I've heard? I've only been on steriods a few times and I felt horrible while I was taking them, I felt like I was hit by a truck. Later on I felt better and had many improvements it was just while I was taking them I felt sicker. I just can't stand all the waiting either. It will probably be at least 6 weeks before I know whats going on with my kidneys. That's a long time to worry and wonder. Thanks again.
Have a great day all! Mellissa :)
