Saw the urologist again today.
It’s now 7 weeks post-urethroplasty. Flow has basically halved since my last visit. And now I’m retaining 300mL or so in my bladder. Fun times.
Doc is gonna do a cystoscopy as soon as he can. He basically presented me with 3 options depending on what he finds;
2) Buccal mucosa urethroplasty
3) Inserting a stent into the urethra.
I don’t like the idea of the stent, but the doc was leaning heavily towards this option. on the plus side, I wouldn’t have to take any time off work, and it’s a simple day op. I’m just worried about it getting dislodged, or causing discomfort, or whatever. Especially considering I do weight training sometimes.
I’m anxious to see what the cystoscopy reveals. Maybe the catheter screwed something up, maybe the surgery site got infected, who knows. just a waiting game now. Hopefully my waterworks don’t completely cease to function in the meantime.
