I just want to say if you have a urethral stricture or your doctor suspects you may have one, but you are able to empty your bladder without pain in a reasonable amount of time don't mess with it. Don't allow him to stuff a scope in your urethra because he will force through the stricture and make your life worse. IF you are lucky enough to not suffer any additional damage from the scope and you decide to have a urethrotomy believe me there's a good chance things will get much worse for you like they did me. NOT only can this cause more damage to the diseased part of you urethra, but the large instruments can likely cause damage from blunt trama as well as inflamation wich will cause more strictures as it did in my case. Having had a urethrotomy 13 years prior with no problems I thought what the hell i'll try it again. That was the worst mistake of my life I went from a 1.5 cm bulbar stricture that caused no pain to what i'm almost certain is a stricture the full length of my urethra and believe me that doesn't feel good. LIFE is over for me I will not put myself through a 2 stage urethroplasty I will stop using my penis first and have the surgery that would require me to sit like a woman to pee for the rest of my life. By the way i'm only in my 40s. SO for all you stricture patients out there if you can void your bladder without pain don't let them talk you into putting instruments in your urethra it's not worth the risk. THEY wouldn't do it to themselves they know better.
