I just got off the phone with my doctor, who is also disappointed of this situation, but thinks that it still has a chance to heal together and/or grow out (I don't believe that, but I've been wrong before!) He's also thinking that the catheter is now pointless and is thinking about having me remove it.
What does this mean? Well, for the short term (while things heal up), I'll probably have a meatotomy. Cool party trick, eh? But appealing? BARF! On the positive side, my urethra will be able to accommodate larger sounds/dilators than before (Fozzie, are you listening?); on the negative side, the shape and functionality of my glans will be irregular. For the long term; if things don't miraculously heal together, it's another trip to Atlanta for dick work. :-( Not that I don't like visiting David, I'd like to come home without a bandage on, just once!!
And now for something completely different...
