i've been wondering the same thing, but i haven't had any problem until 2 years ago, it feels dismissive to say it's a birth defect, because if it isn't the problem, im worried it will happen again - is it possible for alcohol to be the cause of something like this?
i'm sorry i made this confusion about ureter and urethral, they put a catheter in the ureter to open the passage. i'll try to get some oils, and eat more vegetables (anti-inflammatory?) :) i've been eating a lot of watermelon, and it feels like i keep going to the toilet after im drinking or eating water melon - and during that period, i feel very hungry, dizzy. the doctors said that the urine didn't get out properly, and i'm wondering if it may have caused the fungal infection (i sometimes have bladder pain)?
i really appreciate your help, it's kind of really kind of u all - i will stop the iodine, get some of the oils and find some anti inflammatory food until i get checked. i'll also check out that schulze guy and the programs!
i will try to talk with the doctor about the scan results and ureter, and get some more information :)
