I have a 2 year old daughter Isabelle, who has bilateral renal reflux. She was diagnosed at 4 months old, when she had a UTI, and fever of 104. She has been on Bactrum for 16 months now, and the MD told us of a minor surgical treatment, called deflux. Has anyone's child had this done, and how well did it work? She is doing really well on the antibiotic, with no breakthrough UTI's, but im considering the surgery, so that she can stop taking med's.....any advice?

Our daughter has enamel deficiency caused by prolonged antibiotic use.  It will likely affect her permanent teeth as well.  I would definately consider all the options, but the sooner she can dicontinue the Rx the better.

Thank you. I hope that everything will, i just worry about her being on it for too long and her body fighting the antibiotics...glad that your daughter is doing well!

My daughter was born with a similar condition.  she had a third kidney that attached to the bladder on the bottom side.  She had reflux and was on antibiotics for 2 1/2 years.  She was hospitalized 7 times in two years.  They finally removed the kidney and the extra ureter, she's been fine ever since.  The surgery was not  deflux, but I know what you're going through.  It's tough, but I'm sure it will work out.
