My surgery yesterday didn’t happen. They put me under and explored with a couple of cystoscopes and an x-ray machine before cutting me, and it turns out that I have a very unusual, incredibly scarred section that has virtually no lumen left. The entire section that needs repaired is 6.2 cm long. They woke me up and told me that they would need more surgeons on hand to possibly assist, including a plastic surgeon in case of a forearm free flap, and a colorectal surgeon in case of an intestinal graft.
She also gave me the option of a urethrostomy, which is where they cut the urethra at the proximal bulbar and route it to the perinium. I would have to sit to urinate, and ejaculate also comes out there. Other than that everything works normally. There’s a very high success rate and it’s a short surgery with a short recovery. I’m definitely leaning toward that option.
