So i had my first Cystoscopy today.
It was more painful than I anticipated however was mainly bearable. The anaesthetic was painful and the water being pumped in was very uncomfortable.
Thankfully it ended much quicker than I expected.
Following the procedure I was told to go to the bathroom and then get dressed.
I urinated as much as possible which unfortunately wasn't much and while was finishing dressing myself the rest of my bladder emptied so I ended up having to borrow a pair of pants from one of the nurses which was a very embarrassing experience thankfully the staff were very kind.
The urologist said that the cystoscopy showed nothing abnormal with my bladder urethra or prostate.
So now in several months I will be undergoing urodynamics i have no rough date for it yet as there is generally a waiting list for the procedure and it has to be done at a relatively large hospital.
As the ditropan I was taking was not helping at all and was only causing side effects my urologist told me to stop taking it.
When I asked about "protection" i was told to talk with my regular doctor about it so I have made an appointment for early December
apologies for yet another massive wall of text post.
as always feel free to ask questions or comment I welcome any response.
