    May be No because I feel you should be physically fit and I don't think so it is going to effect your selection in IPS.

    Friend, it is good to know that you are willing to join Indian Police Service (IPS). As you have mentioned that you have been operated in kidney in your childhood. So it is long span of time. And it is expected that you have well healed and recovered from the ailments. If you have not any problem presently in normal life, then there would be no any problem.But I am not a medical practitioner to give you exact medical advise. So it is better for you to consult any nephrologist in this regard and brought the entire matter into their notice and take the advise from him.
