Our expert says:
Recurrent infections in the urine tract are often due to either kidney stones or an anatomical defect in the kidney, tubes or bladder. The steps they usually take are: urine testing to identify bacteria and exclude kidney diseases, sonar to exclude stones and see if the kidney is enlarged or not, then an examination under anaesthetic with a scope ( small fibre optic camera) with which they look into the bladder, maybe an IVP (an x/ray that they take after injecting a radio-opque fluid into the vein, which then over the next 2-3 hours gets excreted through the kidneys). Yes you do have to go back to the urologist and an urologist would be a better option than a gyne for this.
