OMG Facts

Believe it not, the exact organ you're trying to replace during a kidney transplant actually doesn't need to go anywhere at all. Unless the kidneys need to be removed because they are cancerous, or can spread to other parts of the body --- like in the case of polycystic kidney disease --- they really don't cause any harm to your body.

It's the truth. If your kidneys become diseased they merely stop functioning, but aren't "dead." It would actually be more dangerous to try to remove your kidneys because they're located in a very hard-to-reach area in your upper abdomen, while the new kidneys are easily placed lower in front of your pelvis.

So, in a weird way, you'll never have to feel a piece of you is missing after this procedure.
