Brief Answer:
Suggestions on Ultrasound report

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... I have gone through the details which you have provided.

Now I can say that the child is not in any serious medical or surgical problem.

They would have done an ultrasound because there was a surgery previously and they would have wanted to rule out any vesico ureteric reflux are dilated ureters which are not there. So you need not worry.

By what you say I feel that your child is having only a simple viral illness.

I will explain you how a viral illness behaves so that you can be more confident.

Fever of few days without any localizing signs could as well a viral illness. Usually rather than fever, what is more important is the activity of the child, in between 2 fever episodes on the same day. If the kid is active and playing around when there is no fever, it is probably viral illness and it doesn't require antibiotics at all. Once viral fever comes it will there for 4-7 days. So do not worry about duration if the kid is active.

I am happy to help if there are any more further queries regarding this and in future also.
