Children with glanular or distal hypospadias usually he can go home between 1 – 5 (average 3) days after the operation depending on the age of the patient, the family circumstances and the degree of swelling after the surgery.Children with proximal hypospadias (grade III a) usually have one transurethral catheter for 7 days and the child can go home on day 8th. Children with proximal hypospadias associated with deep chordee (Grade III b) usually have 2 catheters, one transurethral catheter for 7 days and another catheter through the abdominal wall into the bladder for about 2 weeks. The child may stay in the hospital up to 2 weeks but may go home earlier if the mother can look after the child and ensure that the catheter does not come out. Children with perineal hypospadias usually require two stage urethroplasty. In the first operation, the surgeon corrects the chordee (penile curvature) and prepares the glans for the urethroplasty. The hospital stay is 3-5 days. In the second stage, urethroplasty is performed to the tip of the penis and the hospital stay is usually 8-14 days.
