My daughter, Lizzy, is 18 months old(finally) and it was a year ago that we(my FH and I) learned that she had Vesicoureteral Reflux. The way we found out was that she ran a fever of 104.5 and we rushed her to the ER... We found out that she had a Urinary Tract Infection, which is not normal at all in 6 month old babies, and ran tests(blood and urine). They also did a sonogram on her belly and found out the issue.
If anyone is wondering what Kidney Reflux is, here is a website that explains what it is and what happens. It is http://www.drgreene.com/21_626.html
I wanted to know if anyone is going through some of the things that I am going through with my daughter. Whenever she has a fever, we are not sure if it is just her teething(because she is still doing so) or if she is trying to get another UTI... We have to go see a specialist once to twice a year with her and have more check-ups than usual goes on. I just sometimes feel very alone in the fact that I worry about her because she is in stage III out of 5 stages and that it has a great chance of not correcting itself than it doing so..
I would really like to talk to anyone about this. I just wanted to write about this and get it out. Thanks for listening.
