What is the reason that urethral tears heal with a catheter but urethral stricture requires surgery and other measures?
Diffrent problems: A urethral tear is helped by the catheter becuause it seals off the tear, prevents bleeding and keeps down swelling that can obstruct flow.

In some pts too much scar tissue forms and obstructs flow.Surgery to clesr out the scar is then necessary. ...Read more

3mo ago hospitalized for broken pelvis, catheter caused uti. Then rehab for a month, another uti. Two more. All 4 treated. First ones in my life. Why?
Maybe UTI, maybe not: Normally, the human urinary system is designed to 1) flow one way (i.e. Out) and 2) completely empty the bladder. The catheter can cause a "back wash" of urine (with bacteria) into the bladder. Now, if the diagnosis is based solely on WBC in the urine, then it may not be a UTI but rather, a pyuria due to irritation of the bladder by the balloon that keeps the catheter in place. ...Read more

Hormone effects/age: It could be a variety of reasons. As you get older there are physiologic changes, likely related to menopause.
