Hi Ramesh,

Welcome to HCM.
If your left kidney is in good condition, then surgery may give good results.
Your right kidney appears to be almost non-functioning. What surgery are they suggesting - Kidney removal or correction of blood supply?
Even after surgery small amount of hypertension will persist which will require life long control by medicines.
Wish you all the best.
