My daughter is 16 mo. She has Grade 4 Reflux in both kidneys. Any other moms go through this? Any advice? She actually has another sonogram this Wednesday. I am nervous. I am thinking she will need surgery. :(
Sorry you are dealing with this!! My DD doesn't have it but drs thought she did due to many unexplained high fevers and FTT (all ended up being related to regular acid reflux/RAD and aspirating during reflux episdoes).
We had to do a VCUG as well! I agree with the other PPer about making sure you get a good dr to do this! It's harder on us then them I think sometimes with so many tests!
I hope both your LO's grow out of it! It's so hard when they are "sick" and no one else understands!
My DD has Grade 2 reflux which was discovered when she was in the NICU. She's never actually been sick from it, probably because she's been on daily antiobiotics for it since just weeks old. The VCUG procedure was definitely not fun, but she seemed to forget all about it several minutes after it was over; I'm the one who still remembers it! The nurses who helped with the procedure gave her a pacifier that was dipped in a bit of sugar water, which seemed to help. They also did a great job of *trying* to distract her by tapping on the table, making noises, etc.
I know it's not easy. I hope that the sonogram goes well for you.
