Post kidney removal?

I have been troubled with kidney stones for the last few years. After submitting to a myriad of tests, it has been determined that my left kidney, currently hosting a stone of 2.63 cm. and operating at only 12%, is a candidate for either stone removal or kidney removal. My primary physician has said that this kidney could be left in my body after stone removal. All that I have read tell ls me that the kidney should be removed. I have a meeting with my physician next week. I would really opt for the kidney to be removed. Any reasons why I should let it stay?
