Holy moly, Im in your area and we've seen the Ped Urologist for pretty much the same thing! We saw Dr Snodgrass at Children's in Plano (off *******). He is VERY evidence based, doesnt believe in the prophylactic use of antibiotics or automatically doing the post birth sono (which he said was actually fairly useless) or doing the VCUG without substantial cause. Let me ask this really quick. Does your baby just have dilation of the kidneys (suspected reflux?)
Our little one was diagnosed with an 8-10cm dilation of the kidneys. Dr Snodgrass was amazing and after reviewing the extended sono said he felt like the likelyhood of it resolving on it's own was very high, so high in fact that he said unless we actually have some issues, that if we wanted peace of mind to bring baby in at 6 weeks for a quick sono to check his kidneys. I do not know his stance on circ/retraction, but just for his evidence based medical approach I recommend him. Msg me if you want to talk!
BTW, our little man arrived this past Thursday and I've never been SO happy to change wet diapers!
