A newbie here. Completely lost with what's wrong with my daughter.
Bit of backstory. She is 7 and when she was 2 had chicken pox and has never been right since. She started having absences and wetting. They found activity on one side of brain after EEG and slew induced EEG. Then did a brain scan to rule out a tumour. Thankfully all clear.
Absences have settled but she is now incontinent. She has daytime and nighttime enuresis and has wears pull-ups at night as we've been told not to tackle night time yet.
She is under hospital who prescribed oxybutin but since found she has UTI's every month without fail, after an investigation by an incontinence specialist. They took her off oxybutin suspecting it was this but she also had a lot of flushing from the tablets.
She has now been referred to a specialist hospital (Alder Hey) ultrasound was clear but she was busting and I was told she was only 60% full. But yet she went to the loo 10 times after completely emptying (full wees)
They have now scheduled a renal DMSA test and have put her on a daily antibiotic. But I'm lost really as to what it can be. I asked about reflux but they said unlikely at her age (7)
I'm even debating autism as her brother (13) has asd.
I'm sorry for all the waffle. I'm just completely lost. In a weird way, I want them to find something so we can help her. She says every night when will this wee problem go and it breaks my heart.
Any ideas? Thank you
