It depends: Acute kidney failure can happen for several reasons (blood loss, obstruction, toxin damage, immune response to name a few). The kidneys lose the ability to produce urine and eliminate waste, and you can get electrolyte imbalances, uremia, and acid base imbalances.

I would discourage such a kid from riding horses or using medications that can effect the kidney. ...Read more

This usually occurs if the anti-rejection medications are being reduced or stopped, and the immune system continues to attack the kidney. Signs of this include pain near the transplant and fever; this requires immediate medical attention. In other patients, the failed kidney can remain in the body indefinitely with no problems. ...Read more
A quarter sized hard mass was found on my right kidney tuesday .....What will happen to me ? I'm scared now
Workup: How was this mass found? If a solid mass is found on a kidney it is usually assumed to be a cancer and is surgically removed. If the mass was seen on ultrasound you will probably get a ct with and without contrast. You will likely be referred to a urologist and assessed for surgery.
