I joined this forum seeing that there were some posts in regards to their childs tethered chord. My daughter is now 5 years old and was diagnosed with a tethered chord about 1 year ago. She has a deep sacral dimple, which lead us to get an MRI and was then diagnosed with a tethered chord. we have been seeing a Specialist and going to Lurie Children's in Chicago for yearly testing. She struggles with constipation and has had 3 UTI's in the past 3 years, other than that she's great. I am wondering if anyone knows of any other Specialist in the Chicaogland area outside of Lurie Children's that they would recommend? We are looking for another resource to help with the Uro test she needs with the cath, because I am not happy with how Lurie's does it. They want to put her under General Anesthesia in one location, then wake and have us transport her to the other location with Cath in to conduct urine test. That is not going to work, she will freak out. Need to do this all in one location. Any insight or specialist recommendations would be much appreciated!
