I'm so happy to see this community here!!! My son is 21 months and was born with the severe hypospadias and chordee. He had the skin graph and first stage to straighten the penis on July 24th. The second stage where they moved the urethra to the end of the penis and covered the original hole, which is right at the base of his penis as well was done on Feb 4th, 2010. He goes for a check up on Feb 22nd - he is peeing out of his "new" urethra now but the original hole is not healed. We think he's going to need a third surgery or he'll have a fistula which we don't want...Poor guy cried every time he peed for the first 2 days after the catheter came out which worried me - he seems to be better now but still uncomfortable because it hasn't healed underneath yet.
I'm looking for any advice, feedback, experiences with this problem. I'm also due with my second son in a month and looking forward to seeing what a "normal" baby penis looks like :-)
