Posterior Urethral Valve

Dear Drs.
I am a 25 year old pregnant from Kuwait. This is my first pregnancy and I am in 25 weeks gestation. My unborn child is recently diagnosed with Posterior Urethral Valve Syndrome by an ultrasound. There was left sided hydronephrosis with dilated left ureter and dilated thickened bladder with a 'Keyhole Appearance'. I am wondering what is the best action to take at this point. What are my options and what do you recommend. I am worried sick!
