Thanks for the replies, guys. My surgeon performed my retrograde urethrogram today. It was pretty uncomfortable but mercifully brief — probably less than a minute of pain.
I have a 4-cm bulbar stricture, which means I’ll need a urethroplasty with buccal mucosa graft. I’m on the surgical calendar for February 11. Some good news which I was happily surprised to hear was that I won’t have a lifting restriction during my recovery (important because I have a toddler) and my doc thinks I’ll be clear to return to work even before the catheter is out. I’ll spend one night in the hospital.
I’m looking forward to getting this little f***er taken care of.
