I am from Pakistan and 32 years old and not married too. Just came to know as i fell down and had my ultrasound and Dr said that I have fluid in my left kidney from my birth but i have never felt because no symptoms accrued. Then I was asked
to have r scan and had it and it was true that my left kidney is working just 3.5% and right is working well I think 64%.
Still I have no problem thank God and my Dr also said no medication required if you are perfect. My other reports are also clear like, blood, ax cry, ECG, like i have normal critinine too. My question is that is there any problem of that or what about getting married. I hope there will no problem in next life. Plz can you help me out of all this. I still say I alright no problem and not even pain....... I will wait for your answer. Thanks,
It seems that the description of fluid within your kidney and very low remaining function in the affected kidney indicates the possibility of polycystic kidney disease.
Unilateral multicystic kidneys is characterized by the replacement of part or the entire kidney by irregularly lobulated cystic masses (size varying from 1-30 mm) ,held together by loose connective tissue. The renal structure is completely absent, with scanty normal renal tissue.
In most cases the other kidney is normal and grows larger than a normal kidney to make up for the defective kidney, as shown by the renal function of 64%.
There is no need to be concerned about the effects of the condition. But monitoring the onset of issues like proteinuria, elevated blood pressure and change in renal functions should be done, and treatment should be done as needed.
When proper steps are taken and your health is maintained with proper consultation with your doctors, you can have a near normal married life ahead.
