Hi Abra, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The following are some of the risks and complications that can occur with kidney donors:

Kidney donation is a major operation that carries as much risk as any other major operation. The risks of surgery can be in the form of reactions to anesthesia (anesthesia), pain, infection, blood loss, blood clots, pneumonia (lung infection), damage to the healthy tissue around the organs, and so on. The remaining kidney will compensate for the work of the donated kidney, so that the kidney will increase in size a little. Donors will be advised not to do dangerous physical activities and sports such as football, wrestling, self-defense, etc. to reduce the risk of injury to the remaining kidney. There is an increased risk of developing hypertension or high blood pressure in kidney donors. Kidney donors must check and control regularly to the doctor to monitor their blood pressure and kidney function at least once a year. Living with one kidney has not been shown to reduce life expectancy. Before donating your kidney, you should prepare yourself as well as possible, including your mentality. Discuss with your surgeon about the risks that can occur as well as the possible long-term complications of this kidney donation.

GERD or gastroesophageal reflux does not affect kidney function and will not be aggravated by living with just one kidney.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
