My 5 years old son's penis hurts after appendectomy surgery

My 5 year old son had an acute appendectomy 3 days ago. The surgeon said that his appendix was stuck behind his intestines and colon. There was also alot of pus that the surgeon had to clean out. He is now complaining of his penis hurting. Is this normal? There is no fever and he is currently on antibiotics and tylenol with codeine. Thanks

As due to acute attach of appendix,might be due to rupture of appendix there was peritonitis might have given some urinary infection causing this problem,but nothing to worry as he is on antibiotic medicines which will take care of this infection too.
