Urethra Widening?? Help Please!!?

I posted on the wrong board earlier now I'm glad I found the right place.

I'm looking to hear from someone who has had urethra widening surgery. I saw uro today explained my symptoms I was told that I have Interstitial Cystitis. I have had pain at the bottom of my stomach,pressure when urinating constantly siting on the toliet all classic IC symptoms.I'm tired of feeling this way but i'm kinda scared of getting this procedure done. All that I am hearing is negative. About how when you pee it feels like glass passing through. If you have had this done please tell me how painful was it and did it work for you. Thanks. Will be having this done at the local hospital friday.

Re: Urethra Widening?? Help Please!!?

Hi there..My husband didn't have exactly what your having done but did have to have a Cystoscopy and stent put in due to Ureta cancer several times. Seeing he didn't have a narrowing his stents were removed after 6 weeks each time.

I'm not going to lie and tell you it's a breeze but after about 3 days he felt pretty good. Yes..the first 2 days he had some pain when urinating and also a bit of pressure from the stent..but that was about it. During the 6 weeks of needing the stent he totally went about his usual routines.

Hope this helps some...JJ.....
