: my daughter is 4 1/2 diagnosed at 9weeks with reflux on her left side of 2 and the right side 4-5 she's had vcug's yearly and dmsa scans which realed damage/scarring to her right kidney. She's been on maintenance antibiotics since diagnosis and very well until recently when she unfortunately had a breakthrough infection. Her doctor then tells us that she's be underdosed in medication so we've now increased her dose to twice a day. The reflux on her left side didn't show up in the last 3 years but has remained on her right side still at a level 4. She also has duplication of a ureter on that side. The doctor is advising surgeory and doesn't believe she will outgrow this. We are very concerned and are not sure but we are seeking a second opinion from CHOPs. I would be interested in any input, any doctors you would refer.

Hi Tracey, I know it's a bit late and you probably already when to CHOP, my daughter had surgery to correct her reflux done at CHOP (PHiladelphia) by Dr. Douglas Canning. He is a very good doctor and is the only doctor my daughter liked! She had the surgery done back in 97 when she was almost 2 years old. She is normal now, no more reflux and her scar is hardly visible. But if you haven't gone to CHOP (Phila) yet Dr. Canning is a good doctor to go to.
