Re: experience with UTI's in young children? (long)

My daughter was born with deformed kidneys, or what they call duplex kidneys. She didn't have reflux, but she had an extra ureter that was draining much too slowly, resulting in a nasty UTI. Fortunately for us, we knew about the duplex kidneys before she was even born, so we were referred to a specialist early on. She had surgery at 15 months old to remove the duplex part of the kidney, as well as the extra ureter. I have no doubt that this was the smartest thing we did, if not the hardest thing to go through! Surgery on a baby is no fun at all.
