I have had stricture but my stricture was from the surgery itself. I did have bleeding when I walked, etc. and the doc was very slow about taking it all seriously from me.
It is my understanding that cystoscope does not cause stricture but the surgery does... sometimes. That's what happened to me.
I would for sure go ahead with the cysto so the doc can look in to see what the problem might be.
