Hi there- I have a 4 year old daughter with reoccurring UTI's for past 18 months. She is and has been potty trained since 2. No bed wetting or accidents ever. Goes to the bathroom in average 6-10 times a day. Currently in a continual antibiotic.
Recently had a VCUG done- they were looking for reflux. NO Reflux. Did find that Bladder is 3 times bigger than average 4 year old. It holds 600+ and should only hold 180!
Urologist had her take the same test again to check pressure of bladder while being filled and scanned bladder. She was able to urinate just fine but scan did show that she had about 80ml still in bladder. Nurse that did scan said her muscles looked like they were working great...her experience she said she thought we needed an MRI. Also to note that actually catheter was able to be pushed out with muscles. And she was able to go with a full stream while peeing.
Now urologist wants her to see a PT cause she thinks it's due to her not ever emptying. I feel like this is a waste of time and that she needs a MRI. I watch her pee all the time. She pees with a constant flow and like I said goes about 6-10 times per day.
Isn't going to a PT a waste of time and that she has something else going on? I don't want to go on another 6 months and then be told that I shouldn't have listened to this doctor and go and find a new one?
Also- just as a side note - daughter has a birth mark along the top of her butt/back. Would that mean anything?
