hi all once again. advance apology for yet another wall of text.
In my last post I went over the results of my cystoscopy and the current state of my treatment however as mentioned last post my urologist is going to conduct some urodynamic testing in the near future. (several months)
My urologist described the test as "a catheter being inserted into my bladder and a small balloon being inserted into my rectum then water being pumped through the catheter into my bladder"
If anyone here has experienced this i would greatly appreciate any information about it.
When I had my cystoscopy though there was noticeable pain and extreme discomfort it was over very quickly.
My cystoscopy was done with me lying flat on my back in an operating theatre
I apologise for the disjointed nature of this post but i basically just wanted to set up a small basis for comparison as the cystoscopy was my first urology procedure.
my questions regarding the urodynamic test are as follows
what position will I be in during the procedure?
How long does it generally take?
How much discomfort/pain should I expect to experience?
What state is my bladder likely to be in following the procedure?
What side effects if any should I expect following it?
how many staff members re likely to be present during the procedure (my cystoscopy involved the urologist and 4 or so nurses)
if anyone wants any information regarding my current state or my last procedure I talked of it in my last post.
feel free to ask any questions and I welcome any advice or comments.
I would appreciate any comments or questions in any of my threads.
thank you very much for your time.
