2 year old boy with abnormal urine. Not getting ans from hospital.
My 2 yo son was admitted to the hospital this week for dehydration due to a stomach virus. He also had decreased urine and cloudy urine. They released him after he had 24 hrs of iv drips. Now at home his urine is still scant, even though iv'e been encouraging him to drink plenty. And it is still cloudy. Then today after he urinated a tiny amount, i notice there was a long, stringy material in his urine.
At the hospital they didn't get a proper urine sample since he is not potty trained, and he kept peeing over the bag they placed over his penis. I managed to get him to pee in a cup and they sent it to lab. i will get the results monday.
I'm very worried now that he may have an infection and needs antibiotics before it gets worse. Should i take him to another dr, or just wait until monday?
