I am a male aged 34, hardly go the doctors, last time I was in hospital was 30 years ago. had a week to mentally prepare myself for this due to an emergency appointment for peeing blood. I (like you are now) read the horror stories from google and was terrified. My ultrasound and X-ray showed something in my bladder so the consultant said he was going to do a flexible cystoscopy and check my prostate. The prostate check took seconds, felt a little uncomfortable but not painful. Then, the cystoscopy. There was a hot nurse about 22 with the consultant I had read some people talk about erections. Others I'd heard talk about 'the shrivel'. The nurse asked me to take my jeans and boxers down to my ankles and put a gown on. I was alone while I got ready. There I was, laying on a bed. Boxers and jeans by my ankles covered by a gown. I delayed telling the nurse I was ready for a min while I psyched myself up. Then I thought, I have to do it. "I'm ready". In they came, consultant and clinical nurse. Next thing I knew the gown was lifted and very quickly gel was rubbed on my 'bell end'. I could feel something gel like being injected down my urethra. Didn't hurt at all just felt different. Then before I knew it the scope was in. I didn't feel anything until it was gliding down my urethra, it stung for about 5 or 6 seconds. Similar to how it feels if uve ever got shower gel in ur japs eye when u pee. Not too bad, I've had worse headaches. Just a slight sting. Then as he went past the prostrate a slight pinch that made me tense up but again not too bad. Once in I didn't feel anything.
Unfortunately I am now going to have to have these regularly for the rest if my life. Now I've done it once i really don't care. It's not bad at all. The anticipation of your first one is terrible. The doctors and nurses aren't interested in what your penis looks like they don't really look at it, only for a second. Don't be scared if you are having this done. The first 3 or 4 weeks sting a bit, but after that it was fine. As I was driving home, my arse was hurting a bit but that's ok today.
Any questions let me know.
