Would a cat scan be the best way to determine if there is obstruction at the bladder neck?

    mine was diagnosed with a video urodynamics study . This is basically the video version of a cystoscopy . both of which are totally painless.

      I had my first cystoscopy last year. While the procedure itself wasn't very painful, the aftermath definitely WAS. Every time I urinated for the next 2 days, it felt like a piece of barbed wire was being dragged through my urethra. It was off the charts painful, first time I think I've ever screamed out loud in pain in my life. And I was taking one of those pills that turns your urine orange, which the urologist described as like a "pepto-bismal" for your bladder, that was supposed to make urinating less painful.

      The pain started to subside on day 3, and was gone by day 4. But days 1 and 2 were unreal.

      To me, a cystoscopy is begging for an infection and potentially creating a stricture. If it needs to be done, fine but if there are alternative methods do that. I suffered for months following my cystoscopy. The actual procedure wasn't bad, but I think he gave me an infection. It only cleared up because I got a UTI then convinced my GP to give me a second round of antibiotics. Granted it was a one size fits all antibiotic but it helped. My latest uro wanted to do a cytsocopy. I asked why. He wanted to look around. I asked if there was good reason for it like a suspicious something. He said no. I said no to the cysto. I'll do it if necessary but not for $hits and giggles.
