There are some great articles on MSK on our health pages. Here some ' links to good articles as well. MSK only rarely can cause kidney failure and then usually from
the build up of the calcifications or infection, but again this is very rare.The key
is that if he does get UTI, infection make sure they clear up completely before
going off the antibiotics.
This is the best newbie article I have found on MSK
Here are some others too. These also maybe listed in the health pages.
I hope that helps you some.
WELCOME to our community~! The kidney stone propensity itself is genetic (my mom, dad and brother all have had them and landed in the hospital) but there is no concrete proof (best I know) of MSK being genetic. We don't know since my family hasn't been tested since they had isolated incidents w/o repeat.
I have a friend who may be able to come online our comunity to help with the results.
Keep in touch and let us know how your son is feeling.
That would be great if your friend would. I was looking back at DMSA test that was done 2 yrs ago. The impression was
1. Medium-sized left upper ple traceer defect, either reflecting a scar or recent infection.(which we have never seen an infection just stones and debris).
2. Right and left tubular masses are 53 and 47% respectively.
There is other things that ct's in his past had showed. What does this all mean?
Thank you Shelly. I put up some more information on test from 2 yrs ago. I just want to know if there is more issues going on that no one has realized. My poor child he doesnt know what feel good is.
Thank you for your input.
