Aoa dear,
U need full assessment regarding the aortitis, ureter involvement etc.
Its a combined approach by vascular surgeon, urologist and physician.
I will advice you to see me in person with all reports.
Steroids is first line treatment but newer options are available so u do need proper assessment.
