If she was born without a kidney, which wasnt doing anything to her well being until now, what makes you think anyone knew about her missing a kidney? You think a doctor would randomly give a ultrasound to a perfectly healthly person?


Well, other than a perfectly healthy pregnant person.

The missing kidney might exploit bloodwork. How do you not know why you only have 1 kidney even if 1 was removed when you were a kid it should have come up in your medical history

This actually happened to my sister-in-law as well. She found out when she was a teenager, while getting an X-ray or CT scan, that one kidney had never developed.

how could one kidney mess up your blood work I have one kidney for 20 years I had my removed and my blood work all came back fine. I would think you would if you had one kidney also because with me I get tired faster it doesn't make sense either honestly you as a kid couldn't play contact sports or did anything dangerous like ride a bike because if you hit the side where you have the kidney really hard or just right you would have been dead. I know I can't play no contact sports or do anything physical because I do only have one kidney

I have a cousin who was also born with only one kidney. Her parents were very concerned when she was young and they found that out. She has been normal and healthy all her life though as far as I know. Only drawback is no spare....

Seemingly odd question: Did they see if you have both ovaries?

I ask because something similar happened to me. Doctors could never find my right ovary during ultrasounds, but they all passed it off as it just being "hidden by gas" or something. They never assumed I was missing it entirely because I had the Fallopian tube on that side. Well I had a c-section with my son, and sure enough I didn't have my right ovary at all. During the surgery my doctor peaked over the curtain and asked if I'd ever had it removed, and even rooted around to see if it "broke off and floated away" inside me before closing me up....
Anyway, the doctors told me that it's very common that if someone is born without an ovary, that they are often missing a kidney on that side as well. I have both my kidneys as it turns out, but I'm curious if it maybe applied to you
