Feel tired, out of breath over every work. Had a kidney removed. Is this normal ?

hey, im only 14, but i need to ask you something, i had a kidney removed almost 2 years ago, and everything went fine, yet i got out of breathe over stupid things like brushing my hair or walking a little bit. My doctor told me that it was rare but normal for up to a year, yet i still have it, and i ran a 800m race, and at the end i was on the floor and could hardly breathe, i thought i was having a heart attack! took me an hour to recover. is this lazyness? or just because i have one kidney? thanks, AAAA.

Although there can be various causes for your breathlessness on slightest exertion like heart ailment,asthma etc but two most important causes at your age are
Iron deficiency anemia
I would advise you not to take your symptoms lightly and consult a physician for the proper evaluation and subsequent management of your problem.
Your symptoms have nothing to do with the absence of one kidney.
