I had a DVIU in 2006 and dilation and I self dilated with no issues until May 2018 when I started noticing a narrowing.
I had another DVIU and dilation in late May to open it back up and have been dilating since with no issue.
I’m hoping to get some more years out of this.
I saw a reconstruction urologist this morning at Wake Forest. He gave me some options and we agreed I would play it by ear for now and I would call him if I notice any changes then we will do some testing to determ8ne if urethroplasty is best for me.
At your age, I’d quickly get to see a reconstruction expert ASAP and review your options.
What state are you in?
