I was told that I had a duplicted kidney on the right side. The urologist wants to remove the duplicted kidneys, leaving me with a good kidney on the left side. I had no problems until 5 years ago. I have been in the hospital twice in the last 6 months. I did not have the same urologist the second time I went to the hospital and when a ct scan was done there was no mention of a duplicated kidney. A stint was inserted and I was ok for about 6 months. I recently had another issue and now the first urologist wants to remove the duplicated kidney. My question is why did the duplicated kidney not show up on the ct scan?
