Urethroplasty is an open surgical reconstruction or replacement of the urethra that has been narrowed by scar tissue and urethral stricture. Urethroplasty is the prime standard for urethral reconstruction as it can ensure the best and most durable results.Learn More
Before any type of urethroplasty, the scar should be stable enough and no longer contracting. Hence, it is preferred that the urethra is not dilated or cut for at least three months before planned definitive surgery.
The exact surgery time varies as each surgery and patient is unique. In general, the urethroplasty procedure lasts three hours, but it can range from 2 to 5 hours, depending on the severity of the scar tissue and the extent of the required reconstruction.
Generally, it is safe to go back to work once the catheter is removed. If you have a desk job, you can probably return to work after a couple of weeks or a month at the most.

As with most surgeries, the pain is bad during the first 12 hours and then gradually reduces. By the morning after urethroplasty, you should feel quite comfortable. The pain post-urethroplasty is usually just a constant ache that lasts a few days. Nearly all patients are discharged either right after the surgery or within a day or two.
