Ok I'll try to make this short. My Daughter ho just turned 5 has been having recurring UTI's for the past year. She has had about 8-9 UTI. On Novemeber 26th she was admitted to the childrens hospital because her latest Uti turned into a kidney infection. The symtoms she presented were high fever ( it jumped from 99.3 to 105.2 in 35 min) and shaking chills, along with stomach pain. No other symtoms. At the hospital she was put on Iv antibiotics, given a renal ultrasound and a vcug. No abnormalities were found. They diagniosed her with overactive bladder and said that was root of all her UTI's . They put her on Ditropan for the over active bladder, and Chepalaxin for the infection. 10 days of regular dose of the antibiotic the a maintenance dose for a few months. We just started the maintance doses on December 10th. On the 12th she started with the high fevers again, they persisted about every3 hours, I was alternating tylenol and motrin. The next day same thing not quite as often. I calle dthe doc. and he suggested it was probably a virus since she has been on antibiotic's. This is day # 3 and she is still having fevers going up to 104.4 with chills and shaking, but no other symotoms. I am very concerned that it is not a virus and the infection in her kidney's is either not cleared up completely or a new infection. Please help any advice would be appreciated I am really starting to worry.
