Hi  --

I'd love to 'get my life back' also.  I'm 48 and have felt the pain for 30 years.  When I tell the docs, "my kidney hurts" and point below my rib cage, they just say, "that's not where your kidney is."

FINALLY, after searching for YEARS for the answer, I recently found 'nephroptosis.'  I also now have a CT scan from March and an MRI from August showing my left kidney clearly in 2 different places.  (I had the MRI the day after I learned about 'nephroptosis',  and then layed on a decline for a couple of hours before the scan  --  it relieved the pain alot, and put the kidney in it's proper location).

I'd like to know which University/Dr. you had surgery with.  After seeking help for 20 years for the pain, I am very leary of having just anyone deal with this.

I went today to the Uroloog and told her that I have muscle cramps, she told me that this is not related to a floting kidney. I saw that you had muscle cramps as well.
Did that disapear after surgary?

Just a quick note to say hi!  just wondering, how long is recovery time? I'm 63 and have to see the dr. soon about my right floating kidney. It hasn't bothered me for yrs. and all of a sudden it is hurting when I walk a lot.
Thanks, Jean.
