To make a long story short I was operated about 10 years ago at 24 years of age. 10cm stricture within the penis. However 2 other stricutres occured since,one in the bulbar region the other about an inch away from the tip. Last year we operated on the bulbar stricture using a buccal graft.
I am so frustrated that I too am considering perineal urethrostomy and be done with it. I only found out about this type of intervention after my second surgery. If you would be kind enough to answer me the following questions:
The ejaculation from the new opening does it create a mess?
Have you had any uti’s seeing that the opening is so close to the anus?
Has flow decreased since? How many ml per second?
I have seen a few methods including the “7” flap technique, do you know what method he used.
Is this a life time fix?
And finally did he cap off the part of the urethra so that no urine or semen can pass the opening and just stay your penile urethra.
I know its a lot of questions but I have had so many side effects from the 2 previous surgeries that I just want to move on with my life. Thank you so much.

Here are my answers to your questions.
The ejaculation is messier than before, but typically just between my thighs and really not that bad. I will often keep my underwear on & just pulled down some from my waist to catch it. No big deal in my mind.
Never had a UTI since the procedure and I am sure my wiping technique is not always the recommended approach.
Flow has been consistent since the surgery at around 32ml/sec (way, way better than I ever had before).
I am not sure of the exact method used, but it is supposed to be a lifetime fix. Plan is to have 5 followups at one year intervals and then be done.
There was nothing done to block the flow into the penile urethra, but this has been a non-issue as well. Occasionally I may have a drop of urine come from the tip but it has not been a problem at all.
Hope this helps and good luck. I would have done it years earlier if I had known it was an option (especially after knowing how it turned out).September 11, 2019 at 2:56 pm #1987Adam dakakParticipant
