Pelvic Kidney Complications
If someone has a left pelvic kidney are there serious problems that may come in the future? And is there anyway of fixing that kidney?
Fix only if injury: Pelvic kidneys(ectopic) is more mobile (lacks normal attachment) than normally located kidneys. Usually pelvic kidney is smaller. The collecting system and ureter can kink causing hydronephrosis or dilated collecting system. This can increase incidence of stones and infection. Blunt trauma to the pelvis can damage kidney. If in contact sports, need protective wear. Many people have no problems. ...Read more

Right pelvic pain that has slowly been getting worse over the last month and a half. Yesterday started having some pain in back over left kidney.
I have a pelvic kidney. Nobody seems to been able to give me any insight in the past few years, however I was wondering how this could affect pregnanc?
Pelvic kidney & preg: It is relevant to know if the pelvic kidney functions normally, if it gets infected easily, or if its ureter refluxes or has strictures. UTI is more common in any pregnancy. The aforementioned often escalate infection risk. Also, a growing uterus can compress a low or pelvic kidney, which may reduce its function and raise BP. When pregnant, recline on your side w pelvic kidney UP. This helps. ...Read more
Extra renal pelvis : The pelvis of the kidney is middle where everything centers. As urine is made by filtering blood this area collects urine then leads out through ureters to bladder.

In general the concern is a larger pelvis means urine is stagnant. ...Read more

My 61 year old friend discovered papillary cells in his ureter and renal pelvis. Should he take afinotib after the kidney and ureter are removed?
She should be seeing:

Surgery is the main treatment unless there is already spread of the tumor in which case some of the drugs like you mentioned(axitinib/afinitor) may be useful. ...Read more
