Hi,Hi I am 41 year old.Since childhood i had weak flow.I had circumcision when i was 12 years old as all of sudden i had urinary blockage.After that it was fine till 2010 when i started getting pain.I had cystocopy and urethrotomy but that didnt fix it.i was told that i had stricture. so had urethroplasty in bulbar area in 2013.
2015 onwards i started getting urinary infections so again went for test(cystoscopy and dye test).They said there is stricture in front part so have to go for distal urethroplasty.
I just had my first stage of Distal Urethroplasty in October end .They have kept the surgical site open.have been told stricture is around 2 cm.i have follow up appointment in January.then they will decide for the second stage of urethroplasty which is basically closure of site.
has anyone had this two stage distal urethroplasty.would like to know how was the recovery and did it improve the flow after second stage surgery completion?
also wanted to add that after passing water i have to apply bit of pressure using hands to push out remaining water doc say this is milking as the graft is from cheek and is not that effective like the original skin so have to do that always.
has anyone experienced such things with the graft in bulbar area?
