I had a radical prostectomy 12/14/2004. I have not been able to urinate without a catheter. The doctor has tried four times to remove the catheter and each time has had to reinsert it after I have terrible pain. I have a very good output with the catheter in. Has anyone else had this difficulty?

I developed scar tissue at the end of my urethra near the end of the penis. I have had to undergo a cystoscopy procedur twice to remove the stricture caused by the scar tissue.
