Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Kidney transplant is the only option left for a dialysis dependent person. As you know there are chances for complications including the rejection of transplanted kidney. Her single kidney is not functioning and it is nothing wrong in considering transplant as a last resort. Consult a nephrologist and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,     
Dr. Shinas Hussain
