7th August 2008 22:43Hi girls. I used this site so much when I got married in June 2007, since then I had a baby boy on the 4th May 2008. Im bridesmaid for my cousin next year so hence the reason I'm back here again! Anyway when my son was six weeks old we had to rush him to hospital with a high temperature and routine urine test showed a kidney infection. When he had a scan on his kidney it turned out that although his right kidney is fine his left one is enlarged, scarred and the tube going into it is far too wide causing reflux. Anyway he now is on Monotrim, an antibiotic until after Christmas! that will be 6 months. since starting it at the end of June he has had more or less constant diarrohea. Thankfully it is starting to be less frequent during the day but it is still not as solid as it should be! He also has to take Zantec sometimes cause of the acid reflux caused by the Monotrim. Apparantly he cant take gaviscon because it is harsh on the kidneys? Only other thing i have to do till xmas is rush a urine sample to the doctor every time he gets a temperature! Anywho i'm just looking to see if there are any other mammy's out there who may be going through or have gone through this and how they got on? So sorry for the long post... gold medal if you read it all!! Oh yeah - this is my second baby.. my first is nearly 6 - he is super healthy thank goodness, only 5 small antibiotics in his life so far! But my poor little 13 week chicken. My heart goes out to him! As if teething wasn't bad enough!
