  • Chronic uti can be caused by a narrowed urethral tube. The test they are doing for yours, is what caught it in mine. A corrective surgery may be necessary. Avoid bubble baths and make sure she wipes from front to back. There are many causes, but these seem to be most common.

  • MY DAUGHTER HAS HAD THIS DONE WHEN SHE WAS 4 MTHS OLD AND WHEN SHE WAS GOING TO BE ALMOST 2 YRS, OLD. THEY WILL DO THE ULTRA SOUND FIRST THEY ARE CHECKING THE KIDNEYS AND MAKING SURE THINGS ARE OK. THEN SHE HAD THE OTHER TEST WHICH IS CALLED "VCUG" WHICH IS THE CATHETER THEY WILL FILL UP HER BLADDER AND THEY WILL WATCH IF THE BLADDER EMPTY'S ALL THE WAY. MY DAUGHTER HAD WHAT IS CALLED REFLEX. WHICH MEANS BLADDER DOES NOT EMPTY ALL THE WAY, IT GOES BACK UP. SHE DID HAVE ANOTHER TEST DONE AND SHE IS FINE NOW THEY WILL GIVE HER MEDS TO MAKE HER COMFORTABLE. THE CATH WILL BE DONE BY A PEDS NURSE. THIS IF VERY QUICK . MY DAUGHTER HAS ONLY HAD 1 UTI. IF YOU NEED ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ANSWERED PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! YOU WILL BE ALOUD TO STAY WITH HER WHEN THIS IS BEING DONE.
