It’s good to hear they’re getting somewhere, and great news that the repair still looks good.
Sorry to hear that you have to have another procedure. At least it’s not an overly invasive one. They looked over my prostate really closely while they were in there with the scope, since I guess problems with the prostate aren’t unusual with long-term strictures. From what I’ve heard, the pressure against the prostate is increased, and it can sometimes cause urine to actually flow into the channels inside of it. That can cause inflammation and swelling.
I know what you mean about the cystoscopy. I’ve had it done four times this year, but thankfully only once while I was awake. It’s not as bad as it sounds, mostly because it sounds like the worst thing imaginable, but it’s by no means fun.
I’m really glad to hear that the nerves are all still working okay. If those are still functioning, it’s fixable.
