Hi All -
Our son was diagnosed with unilateral hydroenphrosis today. This was a follow up to our 18 week u/s where they found one of his ureters to be enlarged. The left kidney is totally fine.
This time they were able to see that the blockage to the ureter was due to a little pocket instead of a valve where the ureter meets the kidney - called a ureterocele. The ultrasound doctor thought he would probably need to go on antibiotics shortly after birth and would likely require surgery before he turns a year. We meet with the pediatric urologist in a few weeks, but in the meantime, I am sad and nervous for my little boy. If anyone has had any experience with this and would like to share, I would be grateful. The surgery especially is really making me nervous.
