Hi all. I was wondering if any of you have had any problems with hydronephrosis and your lupus? I have had hydronephrosis for quite some time, but now it`s in the other kidney as well. I do get sonograms every 6 months. I still have yet to be given an exact cause of it from my primary care , but did receive a referral to a nephrologist after other dr.s had to make a stink.
Just wondering if anyone has any insight n this area?

Hi kelly,

As far as I know it's not associated with Lupus. I did have it once when I was pregnant with my second child though, but that was long before my diagnosis.

It's good you are going to a Nephrologist they should be able to sort you out.

love
Lily

Thank you Lily. I know I also have medullary sponge kidney, but the dr. said it`s not connected to that. I`m just nervous as to the progression of it. I guess maybe I`ll know more after seeing the nephrologist. Whats that saying...Patience is a virtue ;)
