I passed out during a urodynamic study yesterday. I found the prep extremely painful, and not different than what I expect the prep for the cystoscopy will be. I then canceled my cystoscopy which was schedled for next Wednesday. The doctor offered me a valium to relax me for the cystoscopy. I see so many conflicting stories here about pain and no pain. Am I correct that those of you who experienced most pain and discomfort did not use anesthesia? Is it common for doctors to do this procedure with anesthesia, either general or local? My uroligist isn't offering me the option of anesthesia. I'm trying to get a feel for whether or not this is common with out without anesthesia and if I should seek out a new urologist.
