Back pain

My husband is experiencing pain like you typically see with kidney stones!  However the left side is what is hurting, but his left kidney was removed due to cancer about four years ago.  Any idea what this could be!  I'm concerned & he refuses to go to the doctor!

Phantom pains maybe? Has he had an MRI or X-RAY on his back? Could also be degenerative disc disease.
