When my sister was pregnant with her little girl (who is now 9mths old) she found out that her kidneys were starting to fail but as she was pregnant at the time there was nothing anyone could do until after the birth of her little girl. She has been on medication and having regular check ups. Her latest check up was today and she has been told that her kidneys are only 51% functional and that she now needs to start taking steroid injections. However the doctors wont give her the injections until she loses 20kgs.
My sister isnt a real big girl she just hasnt lost the weight from either of her pregnancies. My mum and I are planning or going for walks with her through the week and we will give her as much support as she needs so she can get the weight off.
Im so hoping that the steroid injections work for her, if they dont the only option then will be a kidney transplant I am terrified, she is my big sister and I really dont wont anything to happen to her. Im so stuck on the what if's, what if the injections dont work?, what if we cant find a compatible kidney for a transplant?, what if I lose my sister?
She has so much to live for and has 2 gorgeous kids that need their mummy so much the doctors can get things back on track for her, I love her so much.
