I have a BCIR. I had my surgery May 2015. I had been having some difficulty intubating the last few months so I was scoped two weeks ago. The findings were a benign appearing, intrinsic moderate stenosis measuring 2cm that was transversed. My surgeon in Georgia was able to dilate it during the scope and I am wearing the foley at night per Dr. Rehnke. I am scheduled to have another dilation tomorrow due to still having issues inserting the catheter. Does dilation and wearing the foley help in preventing surgery or is this just a temporary fix? I am under the impression from reading post on another site that surgery will eventually be necessary. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
