So glad that you have more info. Yeah, that retro urethrogram sucks! I remember that day. But it really gives a better perspective of what needs to be done.
Sounds like you are having a similar procedure to mine. I had a 9cm stricture, tissue taken from one side (big mouth).
Even though your doc said that lift may not be an issue please take some time, if you can. Like you, I have a toddler at home too. My surgery really didn’t line up with his life very well. I missed being able to roll around on the floor and read books to him while he sat in my lap.
If I had to do this procedure again I would but I really would hate to have messed something up to make me have to go in again.
Just my two cents for what it is worth.
All the best to you,
