Kidney scarring in a 4 yr old.

My 4yr old has had 2 UTI's, 1 bladder infection & 1 kidney infection.  She's had 2 VCUG's done.  Both tests showed reflux 4 to 5 were the numbers given. She also only pees about 2 or 3 times a day. She recently had a Nuclear Renal Kidney Scan done.  The results showed scarring on her left kidney.  Her pedi urologist says there's no reason for concern right now, however, there could be problems later.  The Nuclear Scan will be repeated soon.  However, we really need to know what this could mean in the future? Will she need surgery?  Please help..
