Now I want to do catheterization. Is it is ok to do catheterization after 8 months or any problem with the stricture urethra.

Hello dear Lybrate-user, Warm welcome to I have evaluated your query thoroughly. There can be possible stricture again after 8 months gaping, not recommended to perform self catheterisation. Strongly recommended to consult your surgeon or uroloigst tomorrow for catheterisation.& later follow strictly post surgery advises strictly even in so busy schedule, after all nothing is important in the world than your health. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.
