    Because it was unnecessary to increase the trauma of the operation. They only take the ones your born with out if they're making you sick, which is usually caused by infection.

    :zomg: Wow you actually 3 kidneys. Why do you need an extra kidney? Are your other kidneys not functioning properly?

    Sorry if I'm asking these questions. I'm just curious as I never heard of someone having 3 kidneys before.

    I didn't have an infection, they just stop working at a normal rate. I was born with congenital dysplatic kidneys, which I never knew until symptoms of kidney failure show. Which explains why I have high frequency hearing impairment since I was born. My consultant said when you're being developed, your kidneys and sense of hearing is developed at the same time.

    People with 1 kidney are the donors, they can live on the one they were born with. That's why some people donate a kidney to save a friend or a family's life.

    I think I had the gout. The joint on my left big toe was swollen. It was so painful that the idea of trying to put on socks is unbearable.
    I probably had high levels of potassium, phosphate and possibly sodium in my blood.
