Unilateral Renal Failure

If one kidney was to suddenly fail, would there be any symptoms?  Or would the other working kidney be able to do the job of both kidneys?

What would happen to the blood that continued to flow in the failed kidney?  Would this unfiltered blood cause any problems?

Thanks.
