I'm glad to hear that Megan is doing better. When I was 16 I was
operated on for a severe reflux problem. I have double collecting
systems (4 ureters- 2 on each side). The surgery was quite extensive
but that was quite a long time ago and I'm sure that improvements have
been made. What the urologist will probably want to do is to put Megan
on antibiotics indefinitely as a preventative measure against future
infections, tell her to go to the bathroom every hour whether she
needs to or not, push down on her bladder after she thinks she has
finishing urinating to make sure that she got all of the urine in her
bladder out and drink lots and lots of water. They may do a cystogram
if she has not had one already.

Subject: [IP] Megan's Test results
Thank you again for all your support. Megan's cat scan revealed only
remaining and the radiologist said he believed it was from the
nothing to worry about. The VCUG test revealed that Megan is
about halfway up her left ureter towards the kidney. I have not spoken
the kidney specialist yet but I know that she will be on antibiotics
least 2 years.
I don't know if she will need surgery to correct the reflux or maybe
grow out of it...............
Even though she was so sick with horrible bs and ketones Megans A1C
was a cool
7%. WOW.........I love it!!!! Can't wait to see what it will be when
well!!! She is feeling great and her blood sugars have been easy to
and between 60 and 140 mostly!!
WE LOVE THE PUMP!! I can't say it enough!! Thanks again for all your
