I don't know if your baby has the same. I am suprised that your doctor was not able to give you more information on what these cyst are. Ask your father-in law if policystic kidney was the cause of his kidnet problems.
I hope it will all work out for you and the baby.

my daughter was born with only one kidney and the only kidney she has is smaller then normal she is 2 years old now and it still hasnt grown she has high blood pressure and anemia she will need a kidney transplant one day she has bean on a special kidney formula since day one so no store bought baby formula for her and on blood pressure med since 3 months old. as long as your baby has one normal kidney he or she will be fine and can live a regula life in my daughters case she doesnt but  its still going yo be hard for you knowing some thing is rong with your baby.

I'm going thru the same I'm 18weeks and 6days. My doctor told me that they had bad news the babys kidneys aren't there.& there's no water sorounding the baby so chances of the baby coming out alive for more than 5minutes is really bad and risky for me. he won't be able to breath he will not survive..... I was stuck the I went into shock when I got home I was heartbroken very depressed now I no choice but to termante....
