Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
Will my child be o.k?
I went for my 18th week ultra-sound today, everything looks fine, but the doctor says he wants to do another ultra-sound in a couple of weeks because of a flat artery on his left kidney, What is this?
I do not know what your doctor is describing. Please feel free to write back after the follow-up sonogram, and in the meantime, ask him or her what that means.
