Hi. i wonder if anyone out there can help me.

Ive been suffering from kidney problems since i was 5 years old, and had countless infections..
It was treated with prevention long term rotation anibiotics (a good few years) and after that i still had plenty infections but not so often anymore.

Lately ive been having kidney stones plus reacurring utis - like every 2 - 3 weeks. Almost as soon as one clears up the next one is here. We were considering removing my right kidney - where most of the trouble is, but my overall kidney function is 75% and the right kidney is only 25%. The drs seem to think that if my left kidney has not taken over the remaining 25% function till now, it will not do so when my right kidney is removed, so they are reluctant to do so.

So im suffering from infections and all the side effects of the countless antibiotics that i take.

Anyone familiar? any advice?
