I’m a superstar masquerading as a nerd, but you knew that, right?

My poor Carmen! December 12, 2005

She needs to see the kidney specialist. She still has a back up of fluid in her kidneys….. Bilateral hydronephrosis to be exact. The had found the fluid during my prenatal ultrasounds. They said it usually resolves itself before or shortly after birth and it hasn’t.
What does it mean?? Well…. she has to take prophylactic antibiotics daily (until the problem is fixed) She needs this because the fluid that backs up can cause kidney infections. The antibiotics should prevent infection. We’ll see the specialist and he will decide if Carmen needs close observation, more ultrasounds and antibiotics until resolved, or if she needs surgery because there is an actual obstruction.
Most likely, as she grows… the ureters will grow and the flow will improve. That’s what they hope will happen.

I hope my little baby doesn’t need surgery.
