I am now 6 weeks post-op, and things are so-so.
Improvements following surgery:
-No more straining
-No more pain while urinating
-All scrotal tightness as subsided following surgery (took about 5 weeks)
Things that did not improve:
-Frequency of urge
-Force of urination (improved slightly from pre-op state, but not as much as desired)
-Hesitation before going (new issue this week)
All in all, if things remained this way, I probably would be content. I have a feeling though that this will progressively revert back to pre-op status, although I am trying to remain optimistic. Days where I drink alcohol or excessive amount of water are better. I feel I clear out much better and am satisfied. The fact that I can go pain free now was a huge step at least.
My follow up is in June, when I’m sure they’ll flow test and scope. I guess then I will know if another urethroplasty is needed.
