All started beginning this year (Jan 2018) was diagnosed with lichen sclerosus, which after a few weeks got inside my urethra, causing urethral stricture. Went to 2 different urologists and 2 cystoscopy, second one gave me a UTI, caused by ISD, which I did find just too painful. So I was advised to undergo Suprapubic Catheter Surgery followed by Urethroplasty. Yesterday I went for the first procedure, and getting out of theater I was told that there was no need to place the Suprapubic Catheter as flow was still ok...., and I will see my current urologist in 2 weeks time. What I was told after this surgery is that I might need a BNI, bladder neck incision and also to widen urethra at the top entry area..., I really just hope I do not have to self cath again, just too painful...., would rather go for the urethral reconstruction. I wonder if the Urethrotomy would be enough to avoid self cath....??
