To specify the information I am seeking. I would like to know how the surgery would be preformed and the recovery time associated with it. The tear is a vertical tear from the urethra opening.

Without being able to examine you coming there's no way I can exactly determine exactly the type of surgery that you would need. But if this involves a tear of the urethra, this probably would involve separating that tissue apart and sewing the urethra back together and then the overlying skin on the penis over the urethra. This would take about 4 to 6 weeks to completely heal. You would probably need a catheter in the bladder for about two weeks to let the tissue heal. But you really need to see a urologist for a complete examination to determine the exact procedure. They may need to do additional tests such as cystoscopy and an x-ray of the urethra called a retrograde urethrogram to see how severe the tear is. Hope this helps.
