and into the fire........Had my HOLEP and bladder neck resection 6 months ago. REALLY tough first two weeks - could hardly pee at all, just dribbling. Improved slightly but never as I thought it would be. Anyway at my last urology appointment flow less than 3ml. Urethroscopy revealed a 1cm dense bulbar urethral stricture , so I am in the approximately 1% of HoLEP patients to suffer this problematic outcome. (damm!!!) I am now three weeks post urethrotomy . Flow is great now but reading about strictures it seems I am worse off than the original problem and in all likelihood will now have on going problems and probably need urethroplasty as the 1 year success rate for the urethrotomy approaches 0%.
Just wondering if anyone else has experience with urethral stricture treatment post HoLEP ? thanks.
