HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here for your father I could say that underlying cause of kidney disease is concern and not the hydronephrosis looking to over all pathological changes in your father dialysis is the only way that could do something still the urologist is the final judge, hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.
