In brief: Depends on disease

Acute kidney failure is a condition due to many different reasons.
If the reason resolves the disease resolves usually with a mild residual. However, the time frame depends on reason and kind of kidney failure and even varies within the same kind depending on degree of involvement and health and age of the patient.

In brief: ARF Recovery

Complicated question - in otherwise healthy people who have no other medical problems that contributed to the arf, complete recovery is expected.
If there is something else going on then the answer is maybe depending upon preexisting disease and the cause or causes for the arf. Here's something you can read: http://www.Urologyhealth.Org/urology/index.Cfm?Article=20.
