My husband has just been!

My husband has just been diagnosed with Lupus. I am very worried and it all seems to be a very serious complicated condition. I am very scared of what treatment he is having as he says it all just seems like big words. He has quite severe kidney involvement and is awaiting results of a biopsy. He has already had 3 IV bags of steriods which havn't seemed to have much effect on reducing something in his blood which was 80, then went to 160 and then to 200 (I'm not sure what this is) but it was indicating that inflammation in his kidneys was very high. He is now undergoing Chemotherapy. I'm so worried can anyone talk to me about this, has anyone been through the same symptoms? He has headaches, muscle aches, fatigue and slight nausea.

Hello and Welcome but very sorry for what brings you here.

I just want to let you know that we have had a few male members who were in much the same position as your husband with severe kidney involvement at diagnosis and underwent chemo and were brought back to complete remission for years! Hopefully some of those members will come along soon.

I would also advise you to check out the Men with Lupus section as some of their stories are in there. There is definitely hope for quick and in some cases complete improvement.

Best wishes to you and your husband...
