ok i will wait
Let us discuss about the problem before I receive it
What happened to your son and why was the scan done
he was hospitaized
we took a regular scan and they said that some complications in his kidney
there was a little swelling in the left kidney , so the doctor said that he has to undergo a functional scan
Whom did you show
a hospital in my hometown (TN)
we took the scan in Trivandrum
and just got the report
It says there is an obstruction at the Pelvi ureteral junction
this also lead to mild kidney dysfunction
Should i be worried about this? and how can this be treated?
The most common reason of this obstruction in older children is kinking of the junction
The pipe might kink
and leads to temporary obstruction
Generally if it is mild dysfunction Pediatric Nephrologist would prefer to wait with follow up scans
If the renal function deteriorates
further they would put a tube so that the urine
is passed and the kidney function recovers
I think this is the approach that is taken up by doctors
Did you understand what I said?
Are you there?
Did you read?
If your doctors ask for surgery I think you should go for it
i am really worried
I am not sure how it happens in Older children the common reasons
Please post your query with the reports to 'Ask A Specialist'
There is no need to worry because there is effective treatment
for this problem
