So, today I went for my second opinion at the urologist. After the last guy said the problems I was having was down to my lifestyle, which I would have accepted, had this not been a problem my entire life, and when I was 8 I wasn't working nights in a nightclub
It went surprisingly well. The guy listened to me and asked me some questions and they did a flow test and a kind of radiology type thing where they check to see if there's still anything left in the bladder.
I've to go and get some tablets from my GP next week, and in a few months I'm going to be getting some tests. Now, this is where the question comes in. I can't remember the name of the tests (nor do I care) but basically they're going to stick a camera up my urethra under local anaesthetic. Are there any other people (girls especially) who have had this done? How does it go? Is it terribly painful? They've said they'll stop if it's too painful and I can go back another day and they'll either do it differently or put me under full anaesthetic, but I'm still scared! So... what's it like and what should I expect?
