Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.There is absolutely no need for less or more water after the kidney must take a normal intake of water according to the temperature of your place you are living.Take more water if living in hot conditions and less if residing in cold areas.Best would be to talk to the nephrosurgeon who dealt the surgery.Thanks and good luck.
