I had a cystoscopy today & it was not terrible! There is a slight sort of sting and pinch when the tube is inserted, and I definitely knew something was in there...but overall not painful. The procedure lasted about 30 seconds and the doctor said everything looked fine. They fill your bladder with water so when the procedure is over you need to make a quick scramble for the bathroom. I also got to watch on a monitor so could see just what the doctor saw. There was slight stinging when I went to the bathroom, but it has subsided already. Overall, not terribly fun, but not horrible either. Best part is how short the procedure is, the worst part was waiting for a month and being anxious. Hope this helps anyone else who is anxiously awaiting their own procedure!
