Kidney Diseases

Kidney Pain and Missing Kidney



My mother is 54 years old and had a kidney pain. When she went to hospital they told her that she has one kidney. What would cause that? She never had any oparation or donated a kidney. She can`t stand or sit for a long time.


She may have been born with only one kidney. Her standing/sitting difficulties are not related to this.
