What damage can a hypoplastic kidney cause when you have severe high blood pressure , kidney stones and infections. Should the hypolastic right kidney come out. In addition, will I have future problems if my right hypoplastic kidney is removed? What future will I have with it left in and what future/ prognosis will I have if it is removed?

from your query it seems that you have left normal functioning kidney and right hypoplastic kidney.
If the hypoplastic kidney is causing problems like high BP resistant to antihypertensive medicines,recurrent urine infection or stone- it is better to remove it.
Keeping such kidney will aggrevate these problems
A person can live well with single normal functioning kidney.
