Urethroplasty post op healing

I had a urethroplasty 4 weeks ago.  Had the retrograde urethrogram 4 days ago.  The stented penile cath was removed after ensuring watertight integrity of repair.  I am told the suprapubic cath will remain as a redundant void path until body heals a bit more and relearns the old path. Anyone have this experience and if so, how long did it take to reestablish the old void path?  Tnx for any feedback

Turns out, surgeon didn't leave adequate instructions regarding plugging the spc in the post-op timeframe.  I found this out via a conversation with the surgeon's RN a few days ago.  I  apologize for any confusion.  I was simply confused.
