Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is wiser to do them one by one...
Large amount of contrast may have to be used in the procedure, which could harm the already compromised kidney...
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
