I am a 22 year old male, and i have recently undergone an optical urethrotomy and secondary cystoscopy.
The operation itself has been deemed a sucess by the consultant, Mr Rao, and all of my gratitude to him for his professional work, however the aftercare from the local trust has left a lot to be desired.
Being so young, this problem has probably been congential (present at birth) but i am so utterly disappointed to find that the nursing staff or local hospital trust are expecting me to cope with an indwelling catheter for 13days!
in the peak of my health, i normally heal quickly, and this has left me deeply depressed about having the discomfort of a silicone catheter for longer than necessary.
If you are due to undergo this procedure, get a statement of the intended time with a catheter, and get advice on the best suited catheter for you. that would be my biggest advice.
the procedure is fairly easy to undergo, the most horrible part is the catheter afterwards.
