Small chance: If you have normal kidney function and no detectable protein in the urine right now... Well then you're doing great. There is always a small chance you will have a new kidney problem, but if you've been over 10years without any recurrence you are doing great.

Maybe: Anything is possible, but since you have done well for a long time, it does not seem likely.
