Thanks for your response. Here is a gist of how I ended up with this stricture.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with prostrate cancer (Gleason 7) and opted for radiation treatment because it was a non-invasive. When my PSA began to rise after 2 years; I had hormone (Telestar) injections every 3 months. Everything went well for the next 7 years. On March 7, 2017 I found myself passing clots of blood while urinating. I called my uro-oncologic surgeon’s office and was told to go to the Hospital ER as the Doctor was not available. At the ER. A nurse was assigned to catherrize me; a procedure I had never experienced. I knew that she would put a catheter into my penis to reach the bladder to drain the clots out. She proceeded but instead of expecting discomfort, I was getting a lot of pain while she tried to push the catheter. She kept on shoving and even called a colleague and both kept on shoving even using their hip to shove. The pain was unbearable and I even passed a stool with the pain. I then asked them to stop and take me to the Urology Dept. The doctors there put me under and when I came to, I was in a hospital bed. The next day the surgeon came to see me. My scrotum was the size of a baseball and I had a catheter. He explained that the nurse had found a false passage while catheterization that caused the problem. Three weeks later my Surgeon (Dr. N. F) told me that as a result of this “traumatic catherization” I had developed a large stricture which allows only a thin flow of urine. Now after 2 years and 3 urethrotomies (VIU’s) there is no improvement and UTI’s are frequent. Hence his suggestion of a suprapubic catheter.
