Following months of self cathing, my husband has had uroplasty for strictures. Results unsuccsesful . He had a post pubic tube attached to bag for several months whiile surgery healed. He had TURP to adress prostate glands. Surgery was performed through the perinium to avoid scarring the rebuit penis. He can now pee but still used the tube to empy 250 ml each time. Bladder hasapparently beendistended for many years and lack tone. He had many caths as a child due to heart defect and that may be the cause. He wants to eventually urinate and empty bladder. Current cndition in which he doesn;t have to use a bad, )He pees and then empties the rest into a cup) but urologist says there is no surgery for making bladder smaller/more responsive/improving tone. Any suggestions?
