Hi Tom,
Welcome to Connect. I like your username, I like anything that’s easy to remember.
Did you have a prostatectomy or other prostate surgery.
My first recommendation is not to have dilation. It hurts like hell! and isn’t that successful. Of course maybe your not the wuss I am. They can use an anesthetic and if the doctor refuses grab your clothes, run to your car and floor it!!! There is another type dilation procedure where a balloon is used so only the stricture is dilated. It would probably hurt less but I’d still look for an alternative treatment. I’d ask about having a Urethroplasty. Your doctor will probably agree that’s the best Stricture treatment.
Good luck with whatever you decide.
Jake

Thanks again for the reply. I opted for a bladder neck incision but the urologist did a urethral dilation as well while I was under general anesthesia. He said it is a waiting game now to see if I scar down again. Flow is already slowing down after only 4 weeks so I’m getting more pessimistic. Will mention the urethroplasty on my follow up visit.
