My daughter is 4months old and had her first UTI, her pediatrician sent her to have an ultrasound done to check her kidneys, the results were that she has mildly enlarged kidneys. Now they want her to have a VCUG to test for Reflux. Has anyone had this problem? Is it normal for this test to be done after 1 UTI? I am worried and concerned. I am not sure what to expect.View Thread
Thanks Dr. DuMond, I took her to have the procedure done, but the nurses could not catheterize her because they said she has an "extra Opening" that was leading back down towards her vagina and not up towards her bladder. Is this common? I am having to take her to a urologist to have him look to see what is going on. I am not sure what the procedure would be to correct this.View Thread
