My 8 year old daughter got her first urinary tract infection last fall. They did several tests, one of which was a good old fashioned ultrasound. Everything came back, they said there were no problems, but they wanted to do a follow-up ultrasound in January. The pediatrician called today with the results of the second ultrasound and said her kidneys are dilated and needs to be referred to a urologist. I was shopping with my 5 year old when he called so I couldn't sit and ask questions, take notes, etc. I have no idea what this means and am trouble finding any kind of answers on the internet. Thanks for any help you can give me!
