Well its my first time posting on here but I am sh***ing myself over this procedure in a few days.
I was hoping I could get other peoples experiences.. honest experiences.
I need to get a urethral dilation, I am not too bothered about the actual procedure as il be under GA, but the recovery is scaring me and I dont know what to expect. I expect some pain when I urinate afterwards, but looking online people seem to be saying anything from its a bit irritating to grown men saying it was unbelievably painful and they felt like screaming. What can I honestly expect here?
Also is there a chance il have a catheter in afterwards?.. because iv seen some information about needing a catheter but the doctor hasnt mentioned it to me, I have had one before and I know they are not painful so much just miserable, and I was told Id be ok for work after a day, I obviously cant go work with one of them.
I know I cant take the answers for this last question as medical advice but just looking for opinions and experiences, my problem isnt effecting my life that much, ever since a circumcision a few years ago my urine sprays and double streams forcing me to sit while urinating, yeah its annoying but I have done it for two years now I dont even think about it, if this is as bad as it gets I dont think its worth the procedure because as well as worrying about pain I have heard it can make things worse or make you incontinent.. so if I back out of this procedure could I get by as I am or is it something that is going to get worse and cause worse problems down the line.
Thanks in advance for your answers
