Hi all my daughter was diagnosed with a duplex kidney on her left side late november after having a Urinary tract infection for a month and a half that the bacteria cultured as something different 3 times. She was treated with three different oral antibiotics. After the VUR test she was diagnosed with Pseudomonas which she was admitted to the hospital for a week of IV antibiotics. Her Dr believes the catheter was responsible for the Pseudomonas. Anyhow she has a duplex kidney and a spinning top urethra everything else is normal. She has only been out of the hospital since right before Christmas and two weeks later she tested positive for another form of e coli and has been on antibiotics for a week and is still testing positive on a test strip. I'm frustrated because she has been through the ringer with testing, IV's, hospitalizations and we are back at square one... Her urologist and pediatrician are giving me no answers and her no relief.She has been taking probiotics, D-manos, Tart cherry juice, Cranberry juice, Omegas from nordic natural daily. Where do I go from here? sad
