18 month son having trouble peeing for 3 days. what pee he gets out is very a very small/short and quick amount. had scan done showed 17 grams of urine did cathider (? on spelling) took about 15 grams. tests came back fine (did have crystals in urine) doc. says to just watch him as he is eating, drinking and playing no temp. has only peed one time today since 7:00 last night, but was a large amount. what could this be since he has no other symptoms.
One consideration would be ureteral reflux. A VCUG can be considered if suspected, especially if this is association with a urinary tract infection.
I would also consider an ultrasound of the kidney to rule out any enlargement of the kidneys due to blockages.
Blood tests to evaluate for any signs of dehydration - leading to kidney dysfunction - can also be considered as well.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
