Am 4th stage renal failure due to adpkd, expectation of what will happen to my rather large and painful kidneys when they do finally fail?

2 doctors agree

In brief: May require removal

If the large kidneys become more symptomatic (pain, pressure, bleeding) may require excision eventually, especially if they are at minimal function and you are already on dialysis (esrd).
