I saw my surgeon today for my scheduled check-up 6 months after my surgery. In order to check that the surgical repair was intact, he performed a urethroscopy (basically a cystoscopy that doesn’t go all the way into the bladder). It was much less uncomfortable than my pre-urethroplasty cystoscopies, which resulted in the scope ramming up against the stricture. The result? The repair looks as it should, and I don’t have to come back for one year. I’m happy about that.
