Hi fellas, I had RP (Pereneal) in mid July and recovered well from surgery. Having waited the mandatory 5 weeks for the uretha to repair, I went back into hospital to have the catheter removed.
Unfortunately, I couldn't pee (not a drop) and therefore the catheter had to be put back (with a great amount of difficulty I might add). I'm waiting to go back for another try in the next few weeks.
The consultant thought at the time that the stricture was probably due to scar tissue and I believe that when I go back they are going to have a theatre ready in case I still have the problem (whether this is so they can put the catheter back again easier or whether it's so they can carry out further surgery on the scar tissue I'm not sure).
Has anybody else had this problem and if so what happened.
