What is the treatment for urethral stricture?
There are essentially no real medical treatments (medications) for urethral strictures other than that offering symptom control (for example, pain medications to control discomfort). Surgery remains the only treatment for individuals with uncontrolled symptoms of urethral narrowing.
Surgery may be recommended in the following circumstances:
Severe problems with urination and urinary retention
Kidney stones in the bladder
Recurrent urinary tract infections
Increasing post-void residual (amount of urine left in bladder after urination)
Failure of conservative measures to control symptoms (pain)
