:D I had a kidney removed 18 months ago and by jingo I have got a UPJ blockage in the left kidney now. I was given the choice of having continuo ups stents put in on a six monthly basis but that is not a cure. I have opted to have open surgery at the end of February to which is a pyleoplasty redo? I have been told the recovery period is 2-3 months. My questions are is this a realistic timescale, how long could I be in Hospital for? My kidney function is down to low 30's can I e pest further problems. As I get older. I am 54. Apparently I have had this since birth so came as a big shock and then an even bigger shock to get it in both kidneys. Any help gratefully received
