Second kidney biopsy

Anyone here with IGA Nephropathy undergone second kidney biopsy?
I was diagnosed with IGAN in 2006 after a kidney biopsy and taken prednisone for 3 months. All these years it was stable with regular BP medicine.
Now my 24-urine protein (around 2gm/24hrs) and creatinine(around 1.5-1.6) started rising.
My doctor suggested to undergo biopsy again to check the progression and decide to give prednisone again.
Anyone with similar experience here?

Thanks.

No I have not had the same experience but the doctors plan looks like the right thing to do.

Best wishes.
