Patient : My daughter was born with spinal bifita and has had many sergurys. One of her sugerys is because her kiddney is higher then the other and she kept getting infections in her urine. Since this surgury she has had a number of problems and is effecting her schooling due to urine infections from the high amount of cathing. also she is has to be awoken through the night to be cathed and this is very unfair for her as well as myself. Is there anything that maybe my speicialist does not know about that can be done to put an end to this nightmare?
