Have you seen your physician or kidney specialist? If not I strongly encourage you to do so asap.
Having your kidney removed and now sudden intense pain warrants a trip to find out why.

I agree! I had my right kidney removed 2.5 years ago and I occasionally get severe flashes of pain in the area where it used to be. Since the reason I had the kidney removed to begin with was cancer I went and saw my specialist. He told me, after a complete checkup, that what I was experiencing was called PPS (Phantom Pain Syndrome) and was identical to the flashes of pain some amputees experience. He did, however, state that if the pain lasted more than a week, without recent trauma to the area to otherwise explain it, to come and see him ASAFP because it could be an indicator that there something seriously wrong!
