New Holes Appear In Children After Hypospadias Surgery?
, my child is 3 years old and has only had surgery for a few days. But after the catheter is removed when BAK come out in three holes? That is at the end there are 2 and below the former scrotum penis separation. Is this because the stitches haven’t dried or the operation failed?
Thank you for the question.
Hypospadias is a disorder in which the tip of the urethra orifice in men is not located at the tip of the head of the penis, but on the underside. This condition occurs allegedly due to hormonal disorders that affect the formation of the penis during the fetus, ie when the womb is around 9-12 weeks. Frequently, hypospadias can be treated with surgery that includes 4 resists, namely realigning the shaft of the penis, making the urinary tract, positioning the urinary hole at the tip of the penis head, then then circumcising or reconstructing the foreskin of the penis. Hypospadias can often be finished within 1-3 hours depending on the severity. Postoperatively, most sufferers will be able to start their usual activities a few days later.
In most cases, hypospadias surgery is not a dangerous operation, and also does not leave serious complications afterwards. But indeed, often the formation of fistulas, which are abnormal channels that connect the newly created urine channel with the outer skin, causing urine to come out in an abnormal place when urinating. Most likely, this condition is what your child is currently.
You should check your child to see a doctor or pediatric surgeon so that his condition can be evaluated and handled properly. If it is true that the fistula causes the complaint, then this condition can generally be overcome by surgery.
Hope this helps ...
