I had a kidney removed six years ago because of Cancer. I was just told my potassium level is elevated. How would that effect my one kidney?

An elevated blood potassium would not cause damage to the remaining kidney but could be serious and may need treatment.  I suggest that you consult with your physician about possible dietary changes or medical treatment required to lower the potassium level.
