Unhappy Kidney tumour and SLE

I have just discovered I have a tumour on my right kidney, and the kidney will have to removed in next 2-3 weeks. There is apparently no lupus involvement in my kidneys which I think is good. I am afraid of the risk of infection with this surgery, as I have been on immunosupressants for about 10 years, and pick up infections easily. I have had several other major procedures done whilst suffering from SLE (gall bladder removal, appendectomy, brain anuerysm coiling) without too much trouble, but my urologist says I may have to have the big cut this time, and obviously the risk of infection is greater. Any one alse out there had the same problem? Were you okay after surgery?
