    hi, i normally do not post on this message board, but just yesterday, my 15 yr old, was diagnosed with a severe kidney infection, stones in both kidneys, cysts on one kidney, and "meduallay sponge kidney". Apparently this syndrome, affects 1% of the population, and these people are highly prone to cysts on the kidneys, stones, and infections. I am wondering if there is anyone else out there that has this diagnosis. Can you tell me how long you have had it, how have you been health wise? How is your kidney function? Any long term affects, such as ...are we looking at possible dialysis in years down the road? Please ..if anyone has any info on this..please write back or email me. Thank you
