Luke, Chris and Crazy Train, thank you very much for posting your stories. This site has been such an amazing resource for guys on the outside looking in. In short, I’m 28, have had two failed DVIUs and with the help of this site am now scheduled for a bulbar stricture urethroplasty on March 11th with a surgeon who does over 100 per year.
I had my RUG yesterday and the solution wouldn’t even go to my bladder because my stricture was so tight. It was uncomfortable to say the least. Dr. said the cath would come out three weeks after the surgery for me and honestly that’s the part I’m looking forward to the least. Did anyone watch any of the videos of the surgery before they had it? I hate that I’m curious, but I haven’t had the stomach to press play yet.
Again, just wanted to share and hope everyone’s recovery is going as planned.
