my son had a problem with kidney reflux from the moment he was born...first infection being found at 3 months old. scans and tests revealed the kidney reflux on both sides. he was on and off anti biotics for 4 years but would almost immediatly get another infection within days of finishing the course. he then had a teflon injection into the tubes between the bladder and kidneys and this was a success. unfortuantly tests revealed that a lot of damage had already occured on the kidneys..i think the left kidney had 80% function and the right 20%. hes now 13 and although he has had the odd infection (3 in the last 8 years) hes been well. he is not seen by a peadiatrician for kidney problems.
of late ive begun to worry a little. hes developed a strange body odour..now i know hes going through puberty but this is a different smell. its a kind of sweet sickly smell and its present even straight after bathing. hes also suffering some chest pain..hes been for a chest x ray today. i did mention the body odour to the doctor but was told its a 'teenage thing'....could anyone tell me if this could be a sign of more kidney problems?
