Most likely your son will indeed require surgery for recovery of kidney function but this will depend on the cause of the problem. Unfortunately, a Renogram within one week of birth might not give an accurate picture and if your child has no fever and is feeding well, it might be better to hold on for this investigation to be done till your child reaches 3 months as then you are likely to get a true picture. I suggest this be done after you consult a good pediatric urologist straight away.
