My son was sick at 4months old, he had a high fever and smelly breath and urine. I took him straight into ou Dr and he said he had a throat infection and also took a urine sample, this came back he had a urine infection! My Dr had him admitted straight into the childrens hospital as he was so young and its uncommon for little boys to get a uti. He became very sick and dehydrated in hospital. They had him on all drips and antibiotics for a few days. Was very scary! They did an ultrasound to see if there may be any problems with him that may of caused the UTI. They found several kidney stones!! the largest a 7mm. My son has now been back and forwards undergoing test, to see what may of caused these stones. They have ruled out urinal reflux, and calcium, and they were not from the infection as a few months later he had formed new stones and had no sign of infection. My son is now 12months old and we have 2 more specialist appointments in June. His last ultrasound showed that the stones had gone! But he never screamed and I never noticed if he had passed them... very bizzare! His kidneys were still dilated and there was some free floating slugy like stones. Fingers xxx that he has overcome this. I hope to find out more next appointment. Is there any other parents out there who have been thru somthing similar with kids and stones???
