    does taking ibuprofen hurt with having just one kidney?

    If you have only one kidney will taking ibuprofen end up hurting the kidney you have left. There are no problems with the kidney and only have the one because the other was donated.

    I still have two kidneys, but they are very diseased. I would certainly check with your doctor, to protect your kidney as best as possible. It does make a differance.

    Yes ibuprofen will hurt your kidney. After I had kidney removed my doctor told me to never take ibuprofen again. I use Tylenol which the doctor said was ok.
