. Surgery: I am not sure what mj is, but your history shows you are taking rx meds for pain so otc meds may not work. If you are still experiencing pain after all this time you may need to have surgery to reduce the size of your kidneys. I would recommend talking to yor nephrologist and/or transplant surgeon for further guidance.
