Welcome to HCM!

Can you tell me whether she has any other problems like spina bifda?

Is your girl normal otherwise?

From your mail I understand the primary problem is not reflux but difficulty in completely emptying the bladder.

Did they diagnose it as neurogenic bladder?

I need some more information from you , reg their initial diagnosis and what surgery was done twice?

Have they tried any surgery to prevent reflux?

It s difficult to predict how the bladder can grow if she is on continuous drainage in the nights.

Awaiting your answer
Good luck

I understand your concern- as a school going child she must be facing quite a few problems.

Why asked these questions are if she does not have nerogenic bladder why she needed all these.
Now I understand that there was some problem with the first surgery.

Definitely I need complete reports ,discharge summary,etc uploaded.
Is it possible?

You should see a pediatric urologist for these problems.
Not general surgeons!

Any way I think it should not affect her reproductive organs anyway provided in ultrasound uterus,ovaries,etc are normal.

I will wait for your report XXXXXXX
Do not worry
God is great.
