I had a cystoscopy yesterday.I had a local anasthetic with a jelly substance used. It wasnt painful in the slightest and was no more uncomforable than a smear test.I actually have had smear tests that were more painful. It was over within minutes and I watched the procedure on the monitor as it was happening. I am a real wimp when it comes to pain and I did stress quite a lot before I went to have the cystoscopy, and I can honestly say the waiting to have it done is the worst part of it all. After the procedure it did sting quite a bit when I went for a wee and this happened for a few times after and then stopped. I drank lots of fluids as advised. The cystoscopy was because I keep having blood (microscopic) in my urine, however the results were clear and nothing was found through having the procedure.
