Sometimes: It depends on the reason the kidney was removed. If for a large kidney cancer, especially in the upper 1/2 of the kidney the adrenal is often removed with the specimen. For other conditions (especially benign ones) the adrenal is not usually removed. If removed, the opposite adrenal will be sufficient for the needed metabolic activities, if it is normal. ...Read more

See Endocrinologist: See an Endocrinologist before you see a surgeon. If you are hyperthyroid (explaining the fast heart rate), that needs to be treated, and not necessarily by surgery.

Will removing thyroid solve or help hashimotos? Already on thyroid meds and understand that would have to continue.
Thyroidectomy Worse: Thyroidectomy would worsen your problem. Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. You should be on Armour Thyroid, or West-Throid--not synthroid (thyroxine). You also should be on herbal anti-inflammatory substances like Boswella and Turmeric.

Had tolselitis twice and can barely breath don't want to go to doc unless they are taken out. Would a doc recommend my tonsils be removed?
It's possible.: There is no way to recommend tonsillectomy without a comprehensive history and physical.

Basically showing frequent sore throats for a prolonged period. One can also make an argument if a lot of work or school is missed. ...Read more
