Thank you for your query.
The incision to remove a kidney
is a large one made on the back, radiating to the side. The incision pain will be similar to the one with your cholecystectomy
. To remove the sutures should not be painful. Obviously for the first couple of days post operatively , pain medication will be administered . Although your kidneys do regulate your blood pressure having one kidney does not meen you will develop hypertension
,also having one kidney has no effect on your weight. Running is possible with one kidney but caution will have to be taken, as ultra long distance running may cause mechanical trauma to the kidney. I trust this is helpful.
