    When my little boy was born the foreskin on his willy was pulled back a little bit of the end and when he has a wee it literally hits the wall!! Well have just took him for an outpatients appt at hospital and he has hypospadias :cry:

    It basically means the hole where he wees from is underneath and in the wrong place and the hole at the end is closed over - they have said he will have to have an operation when he is 18 months at Alder Hey to make it right and although they say it is nothin to worry about and everything should be fine after the op I just wondred if anyone else has a little boy who has this or has had the operation.

    Thanks

    I will do. Can't say i'm looking forward to him having an operation, but will be happy when it is sorted out.
    At least when he pees on me it doesn't hit my face lol

    Max has the same problem well i think anyway , his foreskin never developed completely it only covers half of his penis head but he can pee normally they told me not to worry and it should either fix itself or ill fix it later on but for now theres no problem

    My friend's son has this - his operation is due quite soon, will let you know what happens and how he gets on.

    His hole is really low too - and all his foreskin is collected on the top - he doesn't seem at all bothered by it though :)

    Does anyone know what the actual op entails?

    Basically they have to close the wrong hole and create a new hole on top and make the tube inside in the right place - I have bin told sometimes they have to do a skin graft to help create the new tube - he will have to have a catheter in for a week after the op too - but this should create no problems for when he is older and if he didnt have it done he would have to wee sitting down :cry:

    I didn't know it was so intricate - thanks goodness something can be done though. I always worried it might hurt him or it would get infected :sad1:
