My urologist dilated. My urethra to 30 french what measurement is that in centimeters?? Jd
Hi--first off how did it go and how are things now that you've had that done?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Got great urine flow no more dribbling but urgency is being caused by a cyst pressing from the outside on to the bladder. The dr. Showed me on the cystoscope. So iam doing blood tests for a mri out of pocket and then going to my hmo who had a 5hard month wait for the urologist. But i wondered about the dialation of 30 french in cms and how long to heal from it?
OK. 30 French is equivalent to 10mm or 1 cm--0.4 inches in diameter. That's a fair amount of dilatation and certainly would allow for good bladder drainage. As for healing from the procedure that should take about one to two weeks.
