Hi Pulakesh Das -
I'm sorry but I am having trouble understanding your question.  It sounds as though you have a 10 day old infant with posterior urethral valve obstruction that has already been repaired.  If the obstruction was successfully repaired, and if urine output is increasing, the urea and creatinine should begin to come down.  You might ask to speak to the nephrologist (kidney specialist) about how much recovery of kidney function is expected and over what time period.   I hope that your baby is doing better soon.
best wishes,
