My son has chicken pox at the moment. But I'm more concerned he isn't weeing. His last wee was sat am. I saw an out of hours gp sun, gp today (mon) and walking center tonight as still no output. I'm just really worried as he is drink a lo more than he usually does. Can anyone help??? Tia

What advice did your GP and the walk-in centre doctor give you?

I would be verh concerned - he hasnt passed urine for over 48hrs? What did ur gp do?

GirlsonFilm Mon 24-Feb-14 20:49:27

What did the GPs say? It might be if he has a temperature he may be sweating out the fluids, having said that keep him drinking lots of water.

Hmm that doesn't sound awesome. Is he having sneaky wees in nappy (if in one)?

Personally unless I was brimming with confidence about the GP (which I don't think you are otherwise you wouldn't be posting) I'd pop to A&E and see what they say. Is he otherwise ok? Running around just itchy? That would reassure me too.

My gp said he isn't dehydrated which I knew as he is drinking 3x amount he normally does. But just said give him plenty of fluid. Walk in centre said not dehydrated or urine retraction so see gp tomorrow. He doesn't have a temp and isn't sweating. X

No urine at all since Saturday? If this is the case I would be taking him to A&E

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 20:58:09

He is in a nappy. At home we have it off just to see. All nappies are bone dry even throughout the night. The nurse showed the most concern for him. He is running around and acting like normal. He has a few off moments where he cries and just sits with u. Last night the out of hours gp was in local A&E. X

Any swelling?

TheGreatHunt Mon 24-Feb-14 21:00:56

How have they examined him? I mean does his bladder feel full?

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:01:04

No swelling at all. It's baffling. X

TheGreatHunt Mon 24-Feb-14 21:02:45

Did they do an ultra sound scan of the area to check? I'd get him back down there to check again.

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:03:05

Doc on sun felt his tummy - looked in nappy. Nurse and gp felt tummy to and gp looked at willy and all around. Tonight nurse asked question looked in his mouth and took temp x

LocalEditorLincolnshire Mon 24-Feb-14 21:03:50

What was his temp peanut?

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:04:12

They said they couldn't feel bladder so wasn't full. But where is all the fluid he's drinking going?? X

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:04:34

Temp was 36.2 x

Wolfiefan Mon 24-Feb-14 21:05:27

I only mention as my DS had nephrotic syndrome. Causes lack of urine (kidneys).

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:08:55

Anything is a great help. Feeling rather deflated by them all. He's never had problems. X

TheGreatHunt Mon 24-Feb-14 21:12:36

Take him in tomorrow and demand a scan.

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:13:38

I will get him back at gp but won't see the same one as today. X

pudseypie Mon 24-Feb-14 21:18:12

I would also demand a scan and a second opinion. We've unfortunately had a few situations where doctors have been wrong with my ds and you'll never regret trusting your own instincts when it's for the good of your child.

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:19:52

Will gp do a scan? Il do anything for my boys. Feeling helpless. X

Wolfiefan Mon 24-Feb-14 21:22:19

BP checked?
Swollen tummy?
Are you sure nappies are dry? (You can weigh them!)

Peanut917 Mon 24-Feb-14 21:23:43

No bp check. No swollen tummy. YeH nothing in nappies. X
