I have had two procedures for scar tissue removal in the urethra.

Customer Question

I have had two procedures for scar tissue removal in the urethra. Both failed sithin 2-3 months after the surgery. I wrote in before and was advised of a stent procedure. I have misplaced the information and the name of the procedre.can you provide me with the information again? Is Cleveland Clinic a good optin for this procedure? Is it safe? I had to have a foley catheter put in place on Wednesday, April 14, 2005 as I was unable to urinate. the foley is still in place. Please advise.
