I am a 30 year old male. I had a BMG urethroplasty a week ago. Currently urinating with catheter due to pan-anterior urethral stricture. Are there any complications and risks associated with it?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I welcome you and want to assure you need not worry as everything is going to be fine if proper care and treatment is opted in for. I have thoroughly gone through your case and can well understand your genuine health concerns.
1. The panurethral stricture is rather a less common but serious challenging surgical issue the urologists have to face.
2. This surgery is usually challenging as there is scanty tissue to cover the whole length of the urethra. Also as we know the reason for panurethral strictures is usually inflammatory disease, so the results of surgical repair may be less than expected on the scale of satisfaction. It is due to the spongiofibrosis of the repaired tissue.
3. During the post-operative period, infections and breakdown of the repaired tissue is commonly seen as a complication. But with all these risks, still this surgery is going on very successfully throughout the globe.
If there is urinary tract infection your physician may prescribe you with Nitrofurantoin (Macrodantin).Preventive measures:
Take cranberry juice to avoid infection.
