negative vcug but dr still thinks reflux. waiting for PIC cystogram. anyone have false negative on vcug?
chelkington responded:
I just had a negative VCUG, but I think it is a false negative. I also have to wait to get my cystogram done in a couple weeks. My previous urologist diagnosed me when I was younger and then believed I still had it last year, since he saw fluid in my kidney through ultrasound and bc of the fact that I've had probably 15 kidney infections in the last year and a half. I actually am waiting for a call back from him to see what he thinks about it. From what I've read false negatives are very rare but not impossible. It should be a blessing to hear that I do not have reflux but I was hoping we had figured out the culprit of all my infections and could fix it, so now I feel back to square one. Hopefully the cystogram will solve both of our inquiries.
