Posterior Urethral Valves

Anyone else here have a son with PUV?

DS was diagnosed at around 25 weeks and born at 34 weeks when I ran out of amniotic fluid. He was immediately cathetered at birth and had surgery at 10 days old to remove the blockage. He is now a happy 10 month old with close to normal kidney function but will need a transplant in the future, most likely when hitting puberty at the latest. He gets bloodwork and renal ultrasounds every 3 months and has had 3 VCUGs.

I am just wondering if anyone else has been through this or is going through this.

I am gald your son is doing well, considering what he went trough. At 25 weeks gestation, my DD was also diagnosed with a severe Lt kidney hydronephrosis. Luckily and with the grace of God, it resolved by itself before her due date. As you can tell, no I havent been in your situation but I will be paying for the continious health of your little one!
