Hi my 12 year old daughter has suffered from constipation since she was 2 weeks old. From the age if 4 she started with overflow as well and also recurring water infections, we have just had an ultra sound and have been told the wall of her bladder is thicker than it should be and her kidneys are odd shaped is this anything to be worried about
yes, recurrent urinary infection,odd shaped kidney( is it horse shoe kidney? ---needs more description),constipation- he needs comprehensive evaluation,initially by pediatrician and later by pediatric urologist .
