Sorry for falling behind with regards to updates, between foul weather, running a business, this, that, and the other thing..... I've had to shift my priorities elsewhere, although I have managed to keep up with email.
So here goes:
I/We am/are in the process of adding an additional resources page. Urethral Stricture Resources will, within a month, host a fairly impressive and (hopefully) one-stop shop for all of your informational needs. In order to do this, We need your help, as most of our information applies only to the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the U.K. . Our viewers (thus far) hail from 22 countries, many, in areas with no documented urological surgeons. So please, send your (subject to verification) applicable information to:
urethral[no spam]strictures at yahoo dot com
We will have listings for surgeons who specialize in urethral problems, vendors for catheters, ostomy and incontinence supplies, manufacturers of medical devices, pharmaceutical manufacturers - (brand and generic), pharmaceutical assistance programs, and other good stuff.
Many thanks for the visits to the site, it is our hope that your questions have been answered, and that we have been of help to you.
Per: Moderators Cesar and Timothy
Welcome to the Urethral Stricture Support blog. These pages are intended to assist those with questions regarding the disease, expected outcomes, resources, and emotional and informational support. AT NO TIME WILL MEDICAL ADVICE OF ANY KIND BE RENDERED. With your permission, your commentary may be included within the topics discussed within this forum. Moderators Cesar and Tim have a combined 50 years (celebrating a half-century of difficult urination) of experience in living with, dealing with, and overcoming what is broadly considered a disease with a high rate of morbidity. We have experienced every common surgical and instrumental "fix"/"repair" offered including the implantation of the Urolume Endoprosthesis. Both moderators have experience with the Urolume Endoprosthesis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first and only such support group anywhere. Please, do not be afraid or embarrassed to ask any question with regards to your diagnosis. We encourage you to discuss any and all information offered within this blog with your Urologist. A proactive and informed patient usually receives the best care.
With your help, and well-considered posts, the information gleaned from this site should help the countless scores of males aged 18 and over who are encountering the diagnosis of "Urethral Stricture".
PLEASE CHECK THE OLDER POSTS, THERE IS SOME VERY VALUABLE INFO POSTED IN PREVIOUS FILES
