My Son Has Hydronephrosis Anyone Else

My 12 week old son was just diagnosed with hydronephrosis. He had an ultrasound and a catheter test done following a bladder infection when he was seven weeks. My pediatrician recommended us to a urologist who will problably do another test. Anyone know what this other test might be? Also, my son seems to scream in pain on certain days. Could this be related? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

My four month old son was diagnosed with this and a hyperureter when he was 18 weeks pregnant. We were referred to an urologist while I was still pg and shortly after he was born he had an ultrasound and the catheter test you mentioned. I am guessing that they will probably do the catheter test again to check for urine reflux ( known culprit of bladder infections) and maybeto look for a blockage that might cause the reflux. If your son has a bladder infection he might cry when he urinates. It could always be gas pains too....Hope this helps! Just know that you are not alone!

What is hydronephrosis?

My friends daughter had hyperureter (I think that is what is ) and wasn't diagnosed until she was about 12 -18 months. She had constant bladder infections and was hospitalized quite often. She eventually had surgery to correct it and is doing great now at almost 4 years old. Good Luck with your little one.
