My child also was diagnosed at 5 months with having hydronephrosis of his left kidney. He had an ultrasound, then two Mag 3's one with vasotec and one without, then he had a VCUG and another ultrsound. They found that he doesn't have kidney reflux and now think it is UPJ obstruction. We go in two weeks to have a Mag3 with lasix to determine the severity of the blockage. Since he has only mild hydronephrosis, the doctor is saying that it shouldn't be a large blockage, therefore we would only have to have him monitored. Has anyones child ever had mild hydronephrosis and had a significant blockage or needed surgery?? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated this little fellow has already been through enough doctor visits and procedures (unrelated to this problem). Thanks!
