Stricture of the urethra: Have you had a suprapubic catheter? Other?
I have a severe ureteral stricture due to a traumatic catherization. As a result, I have a very thin
stream when I pee and do so very frequently and it takes a long while each time… This leads to
retention of urine when I void causing me to have constant UTI’s. I have had 3 Internal
urethrotomies (VIU’s) with no success. My doctor is recommending having an indwelling
Suprapubic catheter. Do any of you know of any other options that are available to me?
Also, what are the Pro’s and Con’s of having a Suprapubic catheter installed?
