Auden's had two diagnosed UTI's, and it looks like we're going through a third. There's a good chance that she is having a sort of kidney reflux issue, say both doctors at Med Express and my googling. It's infuriating, then, that her own pediatrician is never interested in testing her urine or blood, or even so much as looking at her vaginal area, even after when I present them with the information that she tested positive on at home UTI tests and is complaining of pain. I'm trying to get her to see a urologist, but I can't do that without the referral of her PCP, even though the doctors at medex. are the ones who've actually diagnosed the UTI's (that the pediatrician totally missed both times) and are the ones who say it needs to happen.
I think we'll do that Angie's list thing and find Auden a stellar pediatrician who addresses both her's and our needs and complaints. gah! And make sure to mention that both time he dismissed her vaginal pain as her 'telling stories' and didn't even examine for an issue. And in the meantime, I'll worry every free moment I get about the state of her kidneys, bladder, and reproductive organs.
