I developed a stricture after takedown. Had to have it dilated several times which was a bit of a pain in the butt (literally!) But, it resolved itself and I haven't had a problem with that since. It's good yours will be taken care of now so you won't have to deal with it after (hopefully). It's actually fairly common. Good luck on Wednesday!
