Have extrarenal pelvis on kidney. Had flank pain, nausea and fatigue. What should I do?

Hi, I just found out today that I have extrarenal pelvis on my left kidney. I have just come off a weekend of left flank pain, nausea and fatigue . My left side has given me some pain over the last couple of years but always attributed the pain to my job or my workouts. I suspected I could have a kidney stone but after hearing this from my Dr. I m confused. What should I or what can I expect now? I am having bloodwork done this week to rule out other things. Thanks

Extrarenal pelvis is like a mole on the skin. They are slight deviation from normal. They cause no problems and should be left alone. Your cause of pain is something else.
Take help from a chronic pain specialist if your next few doctors dont help your pain.
