My daughter is three years old never had problems with urinating but this past month she had a uti (her first ever). We put her on the medications and no problems since, we even got an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed both kidneys to be of normal size but one had slight swelling so now the Dr wants us to have the dye test done. I've heard this can be very traumatic and we have recently had to seek therapy for recent trauma and I am VERY reluctant to put her through any more for one UTI...thoughts? I explained to the Dr I would like a second opinion of a Urologist and discuss the option of monitoring with urine tests and ultrasounds vs something that could traumatize her for the rest of her life.
