* As per my surgical experience, the chronic urinary retention issue since childhood indicate possible posterior urethral valve in a male child most likely, though other causes of overflow incontinence or recurrent infection through vesico ureteral reflux has to be considered also.

* Kindly get an expert consultation with urologist , basic evaluation with urine culture, kidney function tests, ultrasound, CT scan with IVP and uroflowmetry for finding the root cause and manage in accordance to that only.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
