      Can't speak for others but for me it was very short term relief and had an emergency situation within months. In 15 years I've been rushed to hospital 5 times, unable to urinate at all. It all came on within hours and the treatment was extremely painful.

      Though over the years I began to recognize the problem quicker a non-permanent solution was not an option for me anymore. Each emergency I would end up in agony for a month, needing t have a catheter with a damaged urethra, and attempt to go to work as normal.

      Surgery is the only option for some.

      Hey Buddy

      I never did bee pollen

      My stricture has been fine. It is just before the prostate. A few year ago I had to have clip put back on my prostate. Got the doctor bad he was not my urologist. It is a long story but I will give you the short version.

      With the stricture my urologist told me that I can only have a 14 fr coude catheter or smaller. This doctor did a surgery on me I had to be flashed out. He put in a 28 fr straight catheter. I was upset when I woke up.

      But with him doing that he opened up the stricture and it is still open. No problems

      Have a good day...Ken

      PS See if you can do some dilation.

      I don't know what effects it makes but it works.i was diagnosed in nov 2017 urethral stricture 1.4 cm in the end of penile urethral called penobulbo. I had to strain urine to get flow.got pain in right kidney bcoz of straining during urinating.i went to urologist and he gave me ciprofloxacin 500mg twice in a day and said don't worry it may be a infection or inflammation of prostate that is causing this and said it is better for you to go for urethrogram.after urethrogram's report he found stricture in urethra by the urethrogram and then he adviced me to have urethrotomy but i refused bcoz i got normal flow of urine without straining with taking cipro 500 mg.when i took cipro 5 days i got relief upcoming 15 days.i had to take cipro for 5 days in every 20 days of a month.so i have been taking cipro from nov 7 2017 to 10 october 2018.when i searched the side effects of cipro on google then i understood that it has lot of side effects.i was searching cure for urethral stricture on google before going to urethrotomy and then i read about bee pollen that it gives you relief but does not treat the stricture.so i tried forever bee pollen and it amazed me from its result.i take bee pollen 500mg tablet twice in a day.one after lunch and one before going to bed.so it is my story frnd.i think being a human and muslim it is my duty to help others that's why i am telling you my story.hope you will get same result from bee pollen.i am waiting for a new treatment which has been introduced by urotronic .first patient got treatment in canada by the optilume drug coated balloon catheter of urotronic.actually urotronic has introduced this dcb to make urethrotomy successfull bcoz this drug coated balloon ends the high recurrence rate after urethrotomy.you can search on google or twitter about urotronic.
