    Renal Ultrasound results... help?

    I had to have a renal ultrasound yesterday... I haven't yet received the results, but I am really nervous. My question is... one of my kidneys looked very large, taking up the whole ultrasound screen. It was big and shaped like a kidney bean (sounds silly, I know. But it's the best description I can think of). My other kidney looked flatter and didn't take up the whole ultrasound screen.

    I asked the technician if he could tell if anything was wrong, he said he "could read the results, yes". I then asked him if everything looked normal, and he told me he "wasn't a doctor", so he "wasn't going to tell me anything".

    I had to have the test because I have had a bunch of kidney infections and I have been continually nauseous.

    Does this sound normal?? Can kidneys be different sizes?
