Living With A Urinary Catheter › Forums › Urethral Strictures And Their Treatments › Update › Reply To: Update
Had a follow up visit yesterday. Pretty uneventful. They simply did a uroflow test which came out fine. 14ml per second if I understood the DR correctly.
I say for sure that my stream has slowed since the catheter removal a little over 2 weeks ago. If things stayed as they are now, or even regressed a little and stabilized, I’d be happy. I just maintain the concern that the gradually weakening stream since the catheter removal is an indicator that the stricture is going to completely come back and the surgery will have been a failure —like the past urethrotomies I had before the urethroplasty.
Dr. said it’s pretty much wait and see. Does anybody else have experience with the stream weakening in the weeks or months after catheter removal, but then sort of stabilizing and continuing to weaken further?
