Hello, I am going in for my first Cystoscopy  and was hoping for some information on what to expect during. after, etc...
Biggest question I have is I have been told  they will do local and having nightmares about where they will be giving me a shot!?!?!
I have Crohns and have had many colonoscopys done but never had cameras in the front end.
Sigmoid Colostomy / Crohns / Type 1 Diabetic / Ostioarthritus / Fibromyalgia / Asthma / High Blood Pressure / High Colesterol / Migraines. Ain't life a joy?

Doll, if you've had a colonoscopy done you won't have a problem with a cystoscope. There is sooo much more discomfort involved in sticking 6 feet of scope into one's intestine and a thin urethrascope barely 14 inches in total length. You will do just fine. A little valium wouldn't be a bad idea. It's clear you are worried but try to's not a terrible procedure.

Sending extra strength to you for your procedure.  Can’t help much in what the process is…

Just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you..


When I saw your member name "PINCUSHION"... it made me smile and I thought of when I was a child ~  I loved going through my ma-ma's sewing box and seeing... the beautiful colorful pin heads in her pincushion. 


Take care and know we care,

My husband had a cysto in the doctor's office.  He was given an IV of valium and he didn't really remember anything.  He was a little groggy when he came out of there and they wheeled him to our car.  He did have a few bladder spasms and they sent home a sample of something to control those.  After a few hours he was back to normal.  Hope this helps!
