I have urethal stricture and presently self cathing. My Uro feels this will help in controlling my stricture. I have under gone dilation. I just read that bee pollen has been used to help.  Anyone have used it as a means of helping.

    I highly doubt it will help.

    Bee pollen helps with inflammation but won't cure or resolve a stricture.

      Thanks, I was thinking that maybe it will relieve the tension in the prostate causing it to shrink, than the uretha opens up a little, just enough to allow urine to flow past.

    No experience, but that's very interesting. On a slightly related matter I have been using manuka honey in a gel to treat a wound which would not heal (having seen it used successfully - don't laugh - by supervet Noel Fitzpatrick on a cat).

    I have to report that it has worked really well. You can buy the gel at Holland & Barrett in the UK, online if not in their stores.

    I knew that honey was used for centuries for this purpose, but I didn't know it still was. Perhaps it would work on a stricture by reducing scar tissue.

    How is the bee pollen applied? Orally? Into the urethra? As a tablet? In a gel?

      Thanks, I was thinking along that line too.  Just thought that someone have had experience with it.  Its taken orally I'm sure but I have not looked into it yet. What I read said it will relax the muscles and tone down the surface of the uretha. Hope someone can add some first hand information.
