Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided, it seems that you have left sided Renal hypoplasia (Congenitally small kidneys with a reduced number of nephrons but normal architecture).

Unilateral renal hypoplasia usually is asymptomatic and does not cause any major symptoms. Since tests have revealed that the left kidney function is around 5%, and the right kidney has taken over the function. No treatment is necessary; There is nothing abnormal with the right kidney working its full potential. Compensatory hypertrophy of the right kidney will maintain normal renal function.

The kidney is a remarkable organ, that has a large reserve to accommodate the loss of function of a part or whole of the kidney. The rest of the kidneys can continue to function normally for more than 20 years. The prolonged increased workload does not interfere with normal development and maturation.

You might consider consulting your physician or a urologist for further advice and additional information or reassurance.

I hope this information here is helpful.
