My only regret after getting my urethroplasty was that I didn’t do it years sooner. Everyone’s experience is different, but I can say that during my recovery (while the cath was in), I made sure to take it super easy, ice my balls a lot, and keep everything clean. Get a few jockstraps so you can be in a clean one daily. Get off the narcotics as soon as you can. Try not to get erections while catheterized. Check out the thread I started for more of my updates, if you haven’t yet. Good luck!
