Jennifer – thanks for the prayer
Barry – thanks, wish you all the best
Steve – glad you are doing well. God forbids if it happen again to my father I think we will go with Urethroplasty, as you mentioned it’s good for long run.
My father’s Visual Internal Urethrotomy surgery was scheduled at 8:30am this morning but the surgery took place at 11:40 am and he was moved to recovery at 12:05pm. After the surgery the urologist came and told me that as he suspected there was a dense almost 2 inch tissue that he opened. He said that my dad is prone to have this again maybe in 6 months, a year or 10 years. I asked him why he doesnt do the Urethroplasty for him, he replied that Urethroplasty is not the first option, they do the Urethrotomy first, if it comes back again he will teaach my dad to do self catherization and Urethroplasty will be last option.
My father did fine after he woke up from anesthesia with some burning pain on the tip of his penis. There was little blood in the urine bag and he was discharged from the hospital at 2:00 pm with antibiotics prescribed for 7 days. He is scheduled to remove the catheter next week Monday.
He drunk lots of liquid at home and ate some food and is going ok. I changed him to night bag now and after changing I saw some blood in the bag again which maybe as a result of movement of the catheter.
