It should be of note that my son has severe sensory seeking and sensory avoidance issues as well as Asperger's Even though it has been five days since the caths and he says he no longer hurts when he pees, he still insists in peeing in a diaper. He will poop in the potty without hesitation, but will not pee in there. (Prior to the caths, he had been out of diapers for nearly a year, day and night). I have been accommodating him on the "peeing in the diaper" issue while at the same time gently encouraging him that it will not hurt his "berry" if he pees in the potty. He appears to be listening to me and it seems to be sinking in...but still insists on a diaper for now to pee. Should I just continue my current approach? (He already has been through trauma enough and I don't want to force the issue)

Huh. That's a tough one. You don't want to stay with the pull up too long considering the Aspergers, the longer you make it routine the harder it will be to break. He needs to experience it not hurting when goes outside of a diaper for a few times. If it were me, I think I'd try getting the training potty back out and putting it in front of the TV with his favorite show and let him relax for as long as he needs, and get his favorite candy and let him know when he gets some pee in the potty he gets his candy. Do you have an ABA therapist that can help you with this?

Have you talked to his pediatrician? He/ she might have some ideas.

I don't know if it will work for you, but when a friend's son needed surgery on his penis, they allowed him to urinate in warm water in a bathtub for a few days after the catheter was removed. Yes, it was a hassle at first but he was able to urinate without pain and quickly transitioned back to urinating as usual.
