Hi my just turned 3 years old partially non verbal son started pre school/ppcd first week of January he did well the first week and by the second week he did not want to go on some days and that is when I noticed his urine withholding. By the third week of school he refused to go on some days and it was noticed by me that the urine with holding was becoming more frequent. For example my son would wake up in the morning dry from sleeping all night in his pull up then not go in the morning?! Then off to school three hours not go there still dry still wearing pull up from night before then go when I unloaded him out of car!? So we are talking 730 pm last reported urinating then urinating at 12pm the next day!? This week he stayed home from school with croup and I noticed he was urinating once a day I thought it was due to dehydration. Then as I monitored how much he was taking in I noticed he had ample to drink and had not urinated in 22 hours! I got him ready to take him to pediatrician but right before he peed in tub it appeared as though it was very little for as long as he was holding it. Pediatrician checked for uti. No uti but we were instructed to take him to pediatric er if he held it for eight hours. Now you know the history of up to now. He has held his pee for more than 8 hours. Several times in tub it apears as if a trickle might have come out. I am going to take him to pediatric ER in a moment. But my question is this I have seen other postings just like mine they (ER) will empty out bladder and send you home. How many times will I have to do this? Do I just keep taking him in every right hours if he is not urinating on his own? When do I stop? Other mothers have said eventually it corrects it self but after I take him in one time for drainage do I wait like the other mothers (perhaps 24-38 hours?) or do I keep going in? I don't know what to do? Please help!!

If the children are still having problems, they DO need to be seen again by a physician, and Elizabeth, you DO need to get the kidney check done.

When a child cannot urinate (for whatever reason), the urine will eventually back up from the bladder to the kidneys, and can cause kidney problems. Just because you didn't see the connection, you cancelled the appointment. Reschedule it. It is your job to make SURE that all avenues are covered in medical treatment for your child.

My son crushed his urethra when he was 8. The complications started 8 years later. He had to have 3 surgeries, catheters, etc, and it was NOT fun. He was almost in full renal failure, all due to him not being able to fully evacuate his bladder.

Elizabeth, if your son had to have his bladder emptied in the ER, then he could have the same problem, which is a much easier fix for a LO of your kid's age than it was for the 17 YO that was my son.

Hi I am sorry they did a battery of test on my son and found nothing by that hour I went kinda crazy and started looking at the opening the urethral opening where the pee comes out it looked closed up. Er doc came in and said it did look a bit smaller sent us to urologist urologist said it was narrow and it could be fixed with surgery but said it should not have caused what I was describing. I wanted to get surgery right away urologist said no I had to get my sons kidneys looked at first then I could. Something sounded strange cause er said his kidneys were fine just a day eairlier. I did not take him to kidney specialist. I kept him home from pre k. Kept doing tub method and giving lots of liquids it was all I had. Then in his diaper he went on his own days later no tub. There was slit like blood spat on diaper. Like as if from opening. Caught a urine sample very hard to do. And no blood in urine which means it was perhaps blood from urethral opening tearing more from stream of pee. After that he has been peeing on his own very cautious when peeing. He cannot talk so I do not know if it hurts. He is doing fine. I think my son had got sick with croup it lessened pee cause he did not eat for seven days then he also had it narrowing and it was hurting. Keep your son home make job arrangements to stay with him if you can. You watch him make a journal. Good luck friend
