General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Treatment is usually advised to improve the flow rate of urine, to ease symptoms and to prevent possible complications. A specialist surgeon called a urologist advises on treatment. (A urologist treats problems of the urinary tract - such as conditions affecting the prostate, bladder, kidney and penis.) Treatment options include: Widening (dilatation) of the stricture, Urethrotomy, and Surgery (A corrective operation which is called a urethroplasty is performed if the above procedures do not work. Various techniques are used. For example, a short stricture can be cut out and the two ends of the healthy urethra stitched together.)

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
