Hypospadias

So about a month ago we discovered that my 18 month old son has a hypospadias. If you don't know what that is it is basically the pee whole in their little penis is to large and in the wrong spot and requires surgery to correct it. (just a warning if you Google it the surgical pictures are pretty graphic and horrible to look at). he us having surgery on the 23rd of this month and i am extremely scared and worried about it. so basically i was wondering if there are any other moms on here that their sons were born with it. they say its very common about 1 in 225 boys have it. a lot don't know they have it especially when they are uncut like my son is, which is why it took us so long to find out he even had one. I have a nephew that had one and had 2 surgery's for it. I would love to find some other mothers of sons who have had this problem.

I've heard of it, but don't know anybody who's had it.  Is this an outpatient surgery?  You will be amazed at how quickly your son bounces back.  Kids are so resilent when it comes to surgical procedures.  Good luck

my son doesnt have hypospadius, but i am familiar with it. if his hole is just slightly out of place, it will really not be a big deal. i knew someone who's hole was all the way at the base of his penis above his testicles. It required a LOT of surgeries to fix, but he is a normal, healthy, adult now. unless the hole is very noticeably out of place, you do not HAVE to fix it if you dont want to. 

my son has testicular torsion at birth (basically, when his testicles were coming down from his abdomen to his scrotum, one of them flipped over and his tubes tied in a knot and lost blood supply, killing the testicle) and he had surgery to remove the dead tissue at 7 months. I understand your concern. we were a mess over it too. But my son is 4.5 now and you would never suspect a thing unless you were examining him up close.

Hi! 

Deep breath, this is very fixable. Just make sure you have a pediatric urology specialist, at a big teaching hospital with a pediatric anesthesiologist. The more of these surgeries a dr does, the better the outcome. I have dear friend whose father, and two of her 3 boys had it. Now grown, they are fine. Hugs,

I have never heard of this, but good luck with the surgery.  Little kids bounce back like crazy (my son spent months in the hospital after he was  born) and you could never tell now.  Take a deep breath, engage in activity that calms you, and most of all *HUGS*.  Ask the peope around you for them.  It helps a lot!
