Question Urethral Strictures

Going to the doctor on Tuesday for this...already had two surgeries for this...and apparently, it's reoccuring scar tissue in my urethra. Last surgery had me with a catheter (sp?) and a bladder bag for thirty days....and now things seem to be back again...symptoms are difficulty with urinating, not fully emptying bladder, ejaculate getting "stuck" in tube, etc. To fully empty bladder/ejaculate, I have to reach down underneath the testicles and press up to "push it out"......arg.....

Anyone else dealing with something like this or have dealt with it?

I may have a stricture, I am not sure yet. My urology problems are extremely complicated though. Right now I am trying a different catheter (I have to use one every day) and so far it has helped.

I am really sorry you have to go through this though...I know what it is like to wear a bag for a month. I hope your surgery goes well. Please ask the doctors about alternative ways to deal with this, as from what I understand, whenever they cut anything in the urethra it has the tendency to form more scar tissue, which leads to more strictures, which leads to more surgery, etc. - it is an unGodly "Catch-22" situation - there must be a better, more efficient way??? Press them with questions about this....Sincerely, Al
