After my husband’s open partial surgery last week, the doctor said, on day two, it appeared the kidney was functioning. I assumed this was determined due to the blood test results. Then my Mom asked me “how do they know if it is functioning and not the other one?” Then I wasn’t sure. If one can live normally with one kidney how do they know if the one they operated on is working? Thanks for your help.
