Yesterday (29 July) I underwent a cystoscopy procedure due to a frequent urination problem that I have been dealing with since late last year. This was a flexible carried out using local anesthetic.
I am very concerned that the procedure has caused damage to my prostate area. Prior to this I had no issues with my prostate, however since having the procedure done I feel as though the area has been "bruised" somewhat. The prostate itself was found to have no issue (i.e. it was not enlarged). Since having it done, I have not seen any blood so far, and have been drinking plenty of water. The hospital have only advised me to take painkillers if it gets too painful, and that the pain could take a week to subside.
The procedure itself was not painful, however the part where the scope entered the prostate was quite uncomfortable. Certainly, I tensed up quite a bit while it was being done and the urologist "had a good feel around". I suppose I am now concerned as to whether this pain will be permanent or if it will subside. Any advice would be appreciated.
