My daughter had the same symptoms for 5 years when she was 5 she was diagnosed with renal reflux and had a reimplementation surgury done. When she was diagnosed she had a renal abscess that was discovered on catscan that mysteriously disappeared shortly after unfortunately because she was misdisgnosed for so long her right kidney is severely scared. They always told me it was viral infections for years she would have high fevers that would come and go and flank pain. UA would show wbc but culture was negative or neg ua so no culture sent. So many Undiagnoised urinary tract infections and kidney infections scared her kidney. Ask for a vcug and a dsma. Bottom line a mother knows best. If you think there is something wrong there is something wrong.

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
