    Hi all,

    My mum has been living with lupus for about 10 years. She hasnt really used any treatment for it since it only made her feel worse. She has been diagnosed with irreversible kidney failure and will start dialysis within the next 2 weeks. I would like to know whether anyone has also gone through this and what I can expect? any info will be very much appreciated. at this stage i try to be brave for her sake, but i am actually totally scared.

    I'm very sorry for you and what you're going through. I just want to say that untreated lupus can damage the internal organs and may be the cause of her kidney problems she has now. If so, I would be pissed and not scared.
