I had my prostate removed 16 days ago, and the catheter 9 days ago. The catheter caused scar tissue at the end area of the penis and a office attempt to dialate the urethera was unsuccessful due to pain. Outpatient uretheral dialation is scheduled under anesthesia. What type of pain post dialation is there and will I have another catheter? If so what type (all the way to the bladder or just in the penis)? What is the recovery period for this type of outpatient procedure? If there is another catheter how long will I have to have it? if at all.
