  • I had blood and protien in my urine and it turned out all it was was a kidney infection. I am sure you will be fine. Don't get yourself too worked up.
    On the other hand, both my DH and our DD have kidney disease. My DH is more severe than our DD though. She had surgery in January 2008 to have her kidneys fixed. The surgery was a sucess so she will have no other problems in life. If the surgery had been around when my DH was a child, he would not have to go through the disease now. He has to self cath, he is supposed to do it every time he uses the bathroom but he doesn't. He only gets infections a few times a year and they give him some antibiotics and he is just fine.
    Usually kidney disease is something that they will find early in life, and now they are saying that it may also be hereditary. I am sure that you will be just fine. Like I said don't get yourself too upset. GL!
