My oldest son was in the emergency room Monday with pains near his appendix. After some tests, they showed that my son has a horseshoe shaped kidney. It appears during the fetal stage, both of my sons kidneys grew together into one kidney (and yes it is horseshoe shaped). Has anyone ever heard of this condition? I did some research on the web, and I know some information, I'm just curious if anyone else out there knows of anyone with the same problem.....
