According to my doctor, there is to no point in keeping the kidney because there is a simple cyst. Also the function of my kidney is good enough at my 64 years of age and creatinine level is at 0,90, so I should be fine with only one kidney. My question is, what if I keep my kidney, and only have the narrowing tract cut? If I have my kidney removed, are there any possible further problems? Please give me your advice. Thank you
