it is important to confirm the diffential kidney function and and obstruction to the flow of urine. DTPA diuretic Scan ( Nuclear medicine scan) should give you most of the answers. If there is no obstructio to the renal flow and only dialattion of the system is there then nothing has to be done at present. monitoring for urine infection and renal function is important. hope this helps.
