I had a urethrotomy 6 weeks ago to resolve a constant dull need to urinate. Six weeks later pain has resolved but the sensation remains, stricture was small (2mm) and the tightness is less than before and I only hope it will not return. Although I still feel a slight discomfort ... I can certainly feel the area where I was dialated when I run. The surgeon appears to be unsympathetic to my case and says I have a minor issue and it is nothing to worry about.
Worryingly I was not made aware of success rates prior to surgery and although the feeling of needing to urinate was annoying I was living a pretty normal life.
Reading the stories on here are really scary and make me wonder if I made the right decision. Only time will tell. I do wonder if there is any evidence of successful urethrotomy procedures. Most online forums are pretty bleak places to go.
