Good news that there's no new cancer, right? Sorry about the catheter; as we all know that's a real pain > Kinda humorous in a dark sort of way about the checkmark next to "sex" while you still have the catheter. They say the best part of sex is mental, I suppose Hope you get past this discomfort quickly. Best wishes my friend.
Did you get an idea of what they did with the stricture and how long are they keeping the catheter in this time?
Knowing you a little from your posts...you are probably back to work today please just take it easy and have a lovely weekend...
Yep, Back to work and walking very slowly.
The procedure involves making little cuts all the way around the stricture to open it up. The catheter stays in until Monday morning. The long-term plan is yet to be discussed. I don't think this procedure differs from previous procedures in terms of recurrence risk for the stricture, which is high --- but it's not cancer.
