Hey guys my name is Adam and i was operated june 21st 2017. I had a buccal graft done in the bulbar region to treat a 3 cm stricture. I should add that 8 yrs ago i had urethroplasty using foreskin. 9cm repair went well but in simple terms the parts that were attached to the new urethra had since scarred hence the new surgery. I still have a small stricture near the tip of my penis. I dont know what will happen yet. I will say this. Recovery varies from one to another. I had zero pain from my cheek. My scrotum was the problem. A lot of pain the first 72 hrs after that it was tolerable. You may feel like its the end of the world but remember that you will heal and you will get back to your regular life. I coudnt even hold my baby which was tough. But day by day uts a little better. Being home unable to do much is tough so binge tv shows on netflix, read books keep your mind busy and eat healthy.
