    Double Ureter in 3-year-old

    My daughter has had a double ureter on her right side at Stage 4 in both tubes since she was born. She was on Bactrim for almost a year, and she seemed to get better. Recently she was retested and still has Stage 4 in the right side of each Ureter and Stage 2 on the left. While on Bactrim she was still getting UTIs. She has been getting UTIs back to back, fever, stomach pains, vomitiing, et cetera.

    Her doctor is giving us two options for corrective surgery. 1)Deflux gel 2.) or corrective surgery. Deflux gel is obvioulsy less invasive, but am worried that since she has a double ureter problem it will not be as successful as just having one because even though the Stage 4 might be reduced to a Stage 2, it would still really be a Stage 4 assumung both tubes reduce to a stage 2. So really it doesn't help with her situation. Can anyone help with what option is best recommened? I'm not just worried about her now, but also for future problems as an adult. Im trying to research options but not really getting anywhere.

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
