little worried, it just sounds scary.  I hadn't told too many people, just my husband, sister and Mom and now it's filtering to other family members, which is ok.  I would have preferred to wait until I knew something but everyone seems pretty worried, which is nice but that scares me even more.  I've just been saying, I'm sure I'll be fine, they'll give me some more pills to take and that will take care of it.  I hope that's the case, I need to stay positive and hope for the best.
Also, have a follow up with my Kidney Doc a week from tomorrow, will try to remember to find out if my last urinalysis that showed hematuria was done prior to the fleet phosfo or not.
Will be in recovery for 5 to 6 hours, got some good books........hopefully :-)

Beth, wanna wish you the best of luck tomorrow. I know a lot about kidney probs - my mom has been on dialysis for the past 10 years. It was high blood pressure though that got to hers. I do remember taking her for the biopsy and recall she handled it quite well. It really was not a big deal for her (and she had lots of other medical issues going on at the time) and I am hoping the same for you. So, throwing some good luck dust in your direction tomorrow ...
