Hi to all of those who suffer severe renal pain & colic on a continuous basis. I have read some exciting research done by Dr. Ahmed Ghanem that shows a link between LPHS & hypermobile kidneys. the latter leading on from the former! If hypermobile kidneys wer diagnosed with lying AND STANDING intravenous urogram & if they are diagnosed early enough then his research shows that LPHS will not develop. Potentially life changing research! I have met the delightful doctor myself, been operated on by him & have proof read his research as his first language is Eygyptian. he worked in saudi for a while before coming to England. he is willing to give email advise to anyone with LPHS or Nephroptosis!
