So I had to drive two hours in each direction for a twenty minute meeting with a surgeon today. Overall it was probably worth it though.
After a quick review of what had already been tried she went over the planned two-stage urethroplasty and gave me some detailed information about the first stage, especially recovery. It seems I’m going to be kept in the hospital for about five days after the surgery, more or less confined to bed.
I’m already on the waiting list, it looks like the first stage surgery will be in April or March. On the other hand, since the stricture won’t actually kill me I’m pretty low priority.
