Huh. Well.

Bit of a setback last night. I’d been having some mild pain when peeing for the past week and a half or so, but the UTI test I took came back negative, so I didn’t think much about it. Then Friday night rolled around, and my pain when urinating jumped from a 2 or 3 on the pain scale to a 6 or 7, along with a greatly reduced stream.

From what the symptoms are pointing to, I might have developed a partial urethral stricture, meaning my dong is trying to “heal” itself by scarring up the urethra and making it that much harder to pee through it.

The ER staff confirmed I still *can* void my bladder, pain notwithstanding, so I’m not in any major danger. (Thanks, ridiculous pain tolerance!) They’re trying to treat the problem with antibiotics first, hoping it might just be a UTI that’s making my bladder spasm when I try to pee. Even though they agreed that it very well might be a stricture. They wanted to make sure I’m not playing an ace when a two will do, basically.

I’ll keep everyone posted. Fingers crossed, yeah?
