    Can't hurt to call doc and ask. Mine only lasted a couple days and was from the Cath. I would call and ask about it. Some pain sticks around from the stretching from the Cath and equipment they use. Mine didn't last that long tho.

    Doc also told me scar tissue can form. He said if it did it's easy to take care of.

      Could  your father ask the doctor HOW he would remove the scar tissue if any were to form?  Laser, electric knife, etc.  I would really appreciate it.

      It's easy for a doctor to say that it's easy.  Some strictures caused by TURP or cystoscopies may end up requiring surgical repair, sometimes with mucous flaps taken from the inside of your mouth..   Dilation is sometimes done, but the success rate is not generally good, as it may have to be repeated multiple times.

      Lol was me had the surgery . I had to have it repeated to take out more tissue. Doc said if I still had problems it would be from scar tissue or bladder muscles problems. He told me how he would do it I don't remember. Was still kind of out of it. Would be in his office. Said he would give me something to put up in there to heal it as well. Said it wouldn't hurt. And it's common to get scar tissue forming just inside the tip . I think I had some after the first op. Could feel it. He had to scope me and i think he got it loose. I had some bleeding for 3 days and some tissue came out. Then the minor pain when urinating I still had from first op was gone. It healed up. Have no issues now. He uses a Cath to see if he can feel any resistance in urethra. Tells him there may be scar tissue. If it's only been 2 months I imagine he has a follow up appointment in a month? They usually do one at the 3 month post op date. Like I said before. It can't hurt to call docs office and ask just to be sure

    Hi,

    You should contact your father's doctor. He may have a urinary tract infection which may need treating. Good luck.
