today I got some good news and ??? news. I went for my tests (Urodynamics and Cystoscopy) and the good news is that the Urethroplasty worked and is healing nicely. I was unable to urinate still during the Urodynamics. The test did show all is well with my bladder neurologically. My surgeon then suggested we do a scope to see what the heck was going on. It appears that I also have an enlarged prostate that was masked by the stricture. Long and short is, 11/10 I have to go for a smaller surgery to decrease the enlarged prostate. She is going to use a laser to basically make the hole larger in the prostate. It’s a day surgery and I can stay overnight at a local hotel and then go back the following morning for catheter removal. Not what I wanted to hear, but it is a plan and she is certain now that is the issue causing my inability to urinate post surgery.
It has been a long day with lots of invasive things. I am glad I have an answer, but I am also very glad today is over.
If anyone wants to know the gory details on the cystoscopy or urodynamics, let me know. I can elaborate. Not terrible but not something I would want to do very often either.
