Your baby’s pediatric urologist may remove the catheter one week after surgery. He or she examines your son at various intervals to ensure proper healing of the penis. After six months, the penis should be fully healed. The specialist may ask you to schedule an office visit when the child is toilet training, so that the doctor can check the urinary stream. Your son’s pediatrician also continues to check the health and functioning of your son’s penis, typically during annual checkups and particularly during toilet training and puberty.
