Thank you everyone for your kind words! These past 3 months have been pretty rough but I am confident I will get back to normal one day. It feels nice to know other people have had the same problem I am dealing with now. A little update on my story, I went and saw Dr. Metro and he will be performing my surgery now. Just talking with him for an hour or so already made me more confident about the procedure and complications. I will be going back on Sept. 3 to get the pre-op x-ray on my urethra to locate the stricture and the surgery will be soon after. I will be getting the surgery done at Einstein Medical Center in Montgomery also and will be staying there overnight. He also said that my stricture is one of the less complicated ones because he stated that it was already in line with the other healthy part of the urethra. He said it will most likely be easier since all he needs to do is stitch the two healthy ends together rather than re-aligning them first. I’m hoping everything goes well at the next meeting. Thanks again guys! I will update my situation as it progresses.
