I was diagnosed with MSK after having children so my doctors are unsure how much if any damage was done from the pregnancies. They said the damage seemed to be "old" I was hospitalized for 5 days after having my first son because of a severe UTI (found out they dropped the catheter on the floor and still used it) so it could even be from that. I am expecting again and debating if I should terminate the pregnancy due to the risk. I'm looking for advice.
I would try to seek as many opinions as you can from qualified physicians who are top of the field treating MSK. So sorry you have gone through this .. having one kidney + MSK really puts you where you should consult with experts, too.
Others on the community will be able to share their ideas, too, I'm sure.
