Hi. You have 2 adrenal glands. If one has to be removed, don't worry, you'll do just fine with the one remaining! To your good health!

There is an adrenal gland attached to both kidneys. If you no longer have active adrenal glands you must follow your doctor's advice about necessary hormone replacement. If both adrenal glands are working fine, or you are taking the right medicine if you have no adrenals enjoy life!
