My son is 17 and we just came from his peds urologist , during an ultrasound they found what the radiologist think is is scar tissue . He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2004. Back in 2009 this did not show up on his ultrasound. they are doing a CT with/without contrast. Could his Diabetes cause this. He has had bladder reflux corrective surgery back when he was 3 and when he was 10 days old he had a blockage of his right uritur and had it removed.
