I see your concern but as far as my knowledge goes while placing IVC filters(filter in Big abdominal vein) kidneys are never touched but of course people who get IVC done have risk factors that can even cause renal artery stenosis. As far as in know its too much difficult to touch anyones own kidney.If you have any difficulty then please get back to the doctor who operated.I hope i have answered your quarries. Feel free to ask any thing else you have.
Thanking you
