born with 3 kidneys

Hi everyone.

So I was born with 3 kidneys and when I was six years old one of them was removed because it was smaller and caused me pain and urinary infections. It was also removed the urethra that was connected to this kidney.
I'm now 25 years old and a few years ago I started having some pain on the area of my scars. On the scar on my back (from the kidney removal) I sometimes get a deep pain that only gets better if I bend. I also get urinary infections sometimes and I urine lot.

Could this pain and infections be related to the kidney that was removed when I was a child?
My blood and urine tests are normal. The last kidney ultrasound I did was also normal.
