I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball.

The kidney was a birth defect.  Left kidney was malformed & in lower right pelvis behind ovary, on top of right leg essentially.  What started out being insignificant short bursts of pain every so often in my teens and 20s(after pregnancies, constant pain and nausea)was a kidney that became plastered against the lower pelvic wall.  A new doctor found it when it affected the right kidney.  The kidney was dying.
