I have a 3 year old who was diagnosed with a Urinary Tract Infection. She has taken all the medicine and been rechecked - everything came out normal. But, now the doctor still wants to have some test performed on her. She wants to have an ultrasound done on her kidneys and to have a dye put into her renal system to check to see if she may be having reflux in her kidneys. I asked if this may be overkill. I am just not sure that I really need to be putting my 3 year old thru a bevy of test. Has anyone else had this suggested and gone thru these tests? I am going to talk further to our usual peditrician, but I am just real unsure whether I should do this or not. HELP!!!!!
