My four month old grandson was diagnosed inutero with hydronephrosis. He has had an IVP kidney exam and other sophisticated tests. He has been put on amoxicillan profolatically for one year. After having the tests done, the family was told the test needed to be repeated in 3 months. What would be his life long prognosis...would he end up needing surgery no matter what. Are there other symptoms to look for?

Dear Marie,

These are ALL questions best answered by his present docs. They must be made to stand still long enough to fully answer these questions since they are VITAL to the parents right now! THEY know the answers as well as they can be known at this time and NO ONE else can.

Next, although it is too late for this little tyke to prevent the congenital damage done here, at least the tissue he has left can be used to its fullest potential IF the parents understand what thy can do to promote serious wellness with him immediately and forever. It has been known for many years that, if a person has healthy kidney tissue, one kidney and half of the other can be removed & the person will still have a perfectly normal life. SO, if there is even 25% of the kidney tissue still functioning, making it as healthy as possible could bring him back to normal fundtion.

Finally, all this could have been prevented by the parents both reading (and following) the information in Dr Paavo Airola's classic "Every Woman's Book"--starting 2 years prior to conception. Since they already have one disaster on their hands, it would behoove them to get the book & read it now. The information contained therein would also go a long way to teaching them how to help this unfortunate child even now (wellness).
