: Are there any adults who have kidney reflux? I have chronic kidney pain and my IVP and ultrasounds were normal. My pain is really bad if I stop taking the macrobid. My urine becomes cloudy and I get WBC's in my urine. I was wondering what the symptoms of reflux are and if the ureter valve surgery is dangerous/successful? Is it easy to dx.?
: Thank you, Martha
I was diagonised 3 months with kidney reflux. I did not have any symptoms that were so noticable. They were doing a gall bladder ultra sound and found that my left kidney was lots larger than my right kidney. As a child I had lots of kidney infections and it was never diagnoised and eventually it damaged my kidney and it is only working about 10% and it is very small. I do have pain in my right flank and have noticed lately that I am brusing easy. The doctor told me after he ran so many test that when the kidney is only working about 5% he would remove the kidney because it would starte causing me lots of pain and infections. When I was diagonised with kidney reflux, the doctor said it was RARE for an adult to have kidney reflux and when it happens it will always damage the kidney. I think some of they symptoms were gradual and I didn't even know something was wrong. I wish they had diagonised this when I was a child, I would now have 2 healthy kidneys.
