So I go in for my 3 month scan today, since surgery. I had my whole kidney removed, so the doctor is ordering an IV hydration before and after my CT with contrast. I will have a chest and abdominal CT.  Is this typical, and I should ask for this everytime I need scans with contrast. Praying and claiming  NED result.

Can't answer if IV hydration is typical but hoping for NED outcome for your scans. All the best!

I had a 3 month scan also had entire right kidney removed. Was told to hydrate before and after and the scan tech said they lower the dosage because if only one kidney.

No kidney function issues. I guess it just a precaution. I guess it cant hurt.
