| | advanced lupus
My sister is 29, I believe she is in the advanced stages of Lupus. She has been in the hospital for over 40 days now. She has suffered from complete kidney failure, pneumonia, unknown internal bleeding, rash on face, swelling of the face, sores in mouth and lips, and loss of hair. She was diagnosed with lupus over 10 years ago. She is African American. She is in the county hospital so we really don't know if she is getting the best of care. The doctors are not really telling us anything as far as getting better or worse. My question is has anyone gotten better when they are in this stage of Lupus. Has anyone known anyone to die from this? I thought this was a disease that could be controlled.
Thanks for any information in advance.
