Our own WUvian, Tyrusguy, had polycystic kidney disease, in which the kidneys form cysts all over them. Over time the kidneys become very large, Ty's were 20 pounds, and stop functioning. Eventually the kidneys must be removed and the patient must go on dialysis until they receive a new kidney. I say he had the disease because he no longer does since the 'evil twins' were removed on lucky Friday the 13th. Ty came through with flying colors and is recuperating at home. A picture of his kidneys is in extended, not safe for stomachs- you have been duly warned.
