I am a male of 55 yr. I am a diabetic and high BP patient too. Diabetes was seen 12 yr earlier and high BP was seen from last year. Currently hydronephrosis was detected in ultrasound with 10mm loss of parenchyma with left kidney swollen. X ray also shows the swollen kidney. So what do you suggest? Should I remove the left kidney or leave it as it is? Note* no kidney stone was detected in my whole life and my RFT test is normal.

I am a nephrologist and I have no surgical expertise.  A urologist is a surgeon and deals with surgical treatment of the kidney and lower urinary tract.  I suggest that you consult with a urologist about your situation.
