I have had one regular cystoscope where they just went in and looked around. I have also had three collagen injections that are similar to a cystoscope. The main difference with the injection probe they use is that it is a ridgid scope. It is not flexable like the normal cystoscope. The Doctor should be able to tell you right there if things are OK or not. You did not mention why you are having this done unless I missed it in an earlier post.
Do not be surprised if you are a little sore for a day or so afterwards. There will also be a small amount of blood in your urine for a day or so.
Good Luck with it,
