Was wondering if there r any other moms that have to deal with their child having or have had VUR? Both my girls have VUR and my youngest had to have surgery to correct it!!!

Hi! My name is Holli. I have 4 children, 2 of which had VUR. My oldest we found out by accident right before his 4th bday. The 2nd was only 3mo old and we were told we had to have her tested. She had it as well. My oldest is now 11yr old and doing great. He had a bi-lateral hemi-nephrectomy (means they took out 2 kidneys). His reflux was the worst any of the doctors had ever seen, but it only goes to grade 5, so that's what they put him has. The other had it at grade 3, but with her, it was low enough that they put her on preventative medication and it corrected itself. I have had all four of my children tested and have no problems answering any questions anyone has on this. Seeings as I have dealt with this since 2001, I would be happy to help anyone with any questions or recommendations.
