Hi i had nephrectomy april 2011 due to end stage renal failure...I had mine removed because i was getting constant infections, from what i understand, had i not been in pain with the constant infections, it could have stayed as the other kidney had already taken over the role for both but my consultant DID recommend nephrectomy as it was useless anyway.

Are you having concerns about the op?

Re: nephrectomy

Both my kidneys have failed and I have a transplant. Both kidneys were left intact. If you don't have problems (infections, pain, etc) most docs will leave the kidney alone.
