My Husband Was Born With One Kidney - Baby Died of No Kidneys
My husband found out he had one kidney at 32yrs old. We have a son that is 8 yrs old now and he has both kidneys. Our second son died at birth with no kidneys (potter syndrom they call it). We want to try again but they told us that we have a 13 to 25% chance of it happening again since my husband only has one kidney. I have had some drs tell me it had nothing to do with it but the genetic councelor told me we had a 13% chance and this other dr that had done studies on babies being born with no kidneys told us we had a 25% chance. I had my first son checked out and he has both kidneys. Do any of you have and children and do they have kidney problems?
There is another lady on the Potter group that has had 7 babies and 3 of them were born with no kidneys and 1 with cystic kidney that died. Her other 3 were fine. Another lady just had a baby that died of no kidneys and her father in law was born with just one kidney. Then again there is another lady where her hubby has one kidney and out of 5 babies, only one was born and died with no kidneys.
I just need a little hope here to try again. My husband has been so down on hisself because he feels like it was his fault because he has one kidney. Its not his fault. I told him i love him and his one kidney. Its been really hard on him.
