See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My daughter is almost 4 years old, with in the past two months she's had 2 UTI's. The first one was nasty,the culture came back showing it grew multiple. The 2nd one I caught right away and the culture came back showing it grew E-coil (normal) Now since this is her second one they want to send her to a childrens hospital and have a ultrasound of her kidneys and a VCUG test,which I heard it a painful test.
Now normally I'd say ok and follow doctors suggestions but this time with my researching UTI's I seen the word constipation come up. My daughter also seems to be always contsipated. At the time for the 2nd UTI she was constipaited,The 1st one im not sure but id probably say yes. So I read that if they are constipaited with their stool being backed up it can push on their bladder causing it to not empty all the way allowing baticeria grow then causing a UTI.
I called and cancled all appointments feeling good about it and planning to keep her on miralax and bump up her fiber in her foods,then her doctor called back highly suggesting us to go.
Anyone deal with this? What would you do?
