I've recently found out that i have kidney failure and had a biopsy about 1 month ago, they think it may be lga Neprothy.

 My doctors said that the most common risk of the biopsy is bleeding, they had to build me up to the biopsy by upping my bp meds so it was under 150, dialyzing me everyday in the run up, giving me a blood transfusion so my hemoglobin was atleast 10.


Plus afterwards, i had to lay flat on my back for atleast 6 hours, i did 7 just in case.


Hope this helps
