Anyone have a LO with this?
DS (almost 8) was diagnosed with it about 2 years ago and I had mostly put it out of my mind until I read something recently and got freaked out.
Here's what happened:
One evening he had a slight bit of blood in his urine (just a small amount at the very end of the stream). I had him in to the doctor within 48-hours. His urine tested neg. for blood and it has never happened again. The doc said it was probably a fluke thing (possibly an slight injury) and to just let it go unless it happened again.
I was a little unsettled so I took him to a ped. urologist who did an ultrasound. The u/s was normal except for the bilateral hydronephrosis. Urologist sent us for a VCUG, which was totally normal. We were told that the hydronephrosis was just a "normal abnormal". The urologist said he'd seen cases like ours before and, based on the imagining, we didn't need to come back unless DS developed strange symptoms or had more bleeding. BTW -- he also said the bleeding was either the result of some trauma or, possibly, from holding his urine for too long.
So -- anyone ever heard of this?
