  • My daughter has this. We were never told she could never play contact sports or anything else. They told us she would like eveyone else. She's nine now. They too noticed before she was born. She is a twin. We went to specialist and she goes for check ups. What ended up happening is the kidney shrinks down to basicly nothing. She seems to pee more frequently than others and sometimes wets the bed. She'll continue for checkup until she's 18 they'll know more as she grows into an adult if any surgery is needed. Everytime she goes to the Dr. she has to have her BP checked. If it's high then we have to have tests run to rule out infection. If you have any more questions feel free to email me.
