How long does it take to form urethral stricture

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had what I suspect was urethritis after a urethrotomy December 2015. I wasn't diognose or put on antibiotics for this. My urethra feels tight through my penis now pretty much the whole length. My worry is this could be a long stricture caused by the inflamation. Feels constricted wether i'm peeing or not. The surgery was done in the bulbar urethra. I've never felt this tightness in my penis before that. This has been going on for a few months now. Could this be stricture already?

    Unfortuantely, regardless of the responses here, the only way to know is to have it checked out by your urologist. Just go man. It's the right thing to do.

    Hi,Its best to get it tested by Urologist.I alo had urethroplasty in bulbar area three years back but flow wasnt good and started getting recurring urinary infections.

    I just had my first stage of Distal Urethroplasty in October.They have kept the surgical site open.have follow up appointment  end of december.then they will decide for the second stage of urethroplasty which is basically closure of site.

      I don't know how you can function with an open penis. My strictures are bothering me so much right now that as I walk around at my job all night just the friction of my penis rubbing against my underwear hurts. You must be in so much pain especially when moving around?

      It's been 3 weeks now since surgery. Pain is not there.only discomfort is while passing water have to sit down. Did you have surgery yet?did doc say how much is your stricture? I would suggest to wear boxers as they are more comfortable.

      I had an repeat urethrotomy for a short bulbar stricture about a year ago. I SHOULD have opted for urethroplasty right away, but was afraid. Now I have strictures in my penis i'm sure of it do to the fact I can feel them. I've had pain and burning every day since that surgery. I'm not gonna mention the incompetent doctors name on here do to the fact my strictures have not been confirmed yet by urethrogram and i'm not sure how I want to handle things yet.
