    Hi caroline10180

    Have no fears about having a cystoscopy....it's not a long investigation into the bladder....you will have an anaesthetic and feel nothing..the whole procedure lasts about half an hour the most....and you will be told how the procedure went when you recover..recovery is fine because you are not given a lot of anaesthetic.

    You will be absolutely fine so stop stressing.....best wishes hope all turns out well for you...

    A cystocopy ....in my experience....doesnt take a half hour.. more likeĀ 2 minutes. They use a local anesthetic and it is not painful at all. They just want to have a peek at your bladder.

      Hi carolune 10180

      I had a relative take me and pick me up after the cystoscopy.....it would be advisable not to drive after the cystoscopy...i had general anaesthetic and i was told it took 20 mins to half and hour....it depends on what they find..i can't speak for those who have local anaesthetics on how long the procedure takes.....best wishes Caroline....
