Right kidney not visible
My sister was suffering from severe stomach pain at the right side. She was not able to eat properly but managed to have her diet. Later, she had problem in standing for long and hence, choose to have bed rest. She, then, consulted a doc who recommended ultrasound. She went for the test, however, the right kidney was not visible. She then asked her to do CT scan, and it says the same.

Possibly she has solitary ( single kidney ) since birth which is incidentally detected now. If her BP , relevant blood and urine test are normal and CT/USG shows no other abnormalities other than normal but single kidney, she will need yearly monitoring.
Next Steps
you need to visit a Nephrologist with the reports.
