When you only have one kidney, there's a greater chance of long-term issues like high blood pressure.
Talk to your doctor about the possible problems you might face.
Either way, doctors will give your kidney to the person who needs it most and is the best match.
He’ll also want you to get up and start moving around shortly afterward.
As with any operation, there are possible aftereffects, like pain and infection.
You don't usually have to change your routine or even your diet to get ready for surgery.
Your doctor will prescribe medications to help manage your pain.
