welcome to healthcaremagic
posteriouretral valves once treated is supposed to be curative and chance of renal failure is no more than in any other normal boy if there is no congenital anmaly in kidneies itself and it is not there
once obstruction is releived and no residual urine prophylactic antibiotics is not necessary
chance of stricture should not be there ,this can be explained by the urosurgeon treating your son and he also can guide you for the urodynamic test in kolkata
wokhart hospital you can enquire
.your son will lead a normal healthy life
