One Kidney Works Fine. After donating a kidney in 2000, the physician's instructions were simple: do not play contact sports; avoid ibuprofen. The donor's remaining kidney enlarges over time and handles all the tasks previously handled by two kidneys. The donor should be able, after recovery, to resume normal activities and lifestyle.
