From what you described, this kidney may be still salvageable by surgery – either open or laparoscopy with or without robotic assistance.

Large kidney stone in kidney. Deciding between a laser lithotrypsy or arthroscopic direct removal. Ureter stents very uncomfortable for me. Thoughts?
Very briefly.: An indwelling ureteral stent is removed in one of two ways. A quick pull on a little string to pull it out of the urethra, or by using a flexible scope to enter the bladder and pulling out the stent with forceps. Both can cause bladder discomfort and some flank pain as it is quickly removed. Some residual pain can linger for a day or two. Pain can be variable with many feeling no pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bleeding: Cancer in these areas usually causes microscopic or visible blood in the urine. It can also cause obstruction to the outflow of urine from the kidney and cause kidney swelling (hydronephrosis). This then can also cause kidney pain in the flank area when the kidney becomes obstructed, similar to the pain from a kidney stone. If left untreated, these tumors tend to grow and metastasize. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is likelyhood of having heart attack or angina after angioplasty (balloon) & stent placed on main artery?
Angioplasty/stent : Heart attack is not necessarily prevented by angioplasty or stent. We do treat the underlying disease aggressively as well as dual anti platelet therapy to prevent stent thrombosis. If you smoke it negates much of the treatment. Most people do well after angioplasty and stenting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At 20 week ultrasound, the baby's kidney showed renal pelvis dilation with calyceal dilation at 6 mm for both kidneys. There was no blockage in ureter. Opinions?
No question here: If you are asking "is there blockage in the ureter?" then the answer is possibly. Significant dilation in early gestation increases this risk. It is important to know that dilation (hydronephrosis) can occur without obstruction as well. If the amniotic fluid is low, see a pediatric urologist for prenatal consultation, particularly if you are having a boy (risk of urethral obstruction is high). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
