Hi. I have two questions. I was diagnosed with UPJ, with terrible kidney pain. The doctor said it went away, but I am still in the same amount of pain. Does UPJ go away and if it does why do I have so much of the same pain? Second question. My right kidney (painful side) is 9.6cm and the left kidney 11cm. Is this normal to have this size difference?

The problem that you describe is a urological problem. I am a nephrologist and do not perform surgery and do not have any urological expertise. I suggest that you consult with a urologist regarding your concerns.
