Questions about Cystoscopy

I am having a sonogram and cystoscopy Thursday.  If the dr. doesn’t see anything wrong on the sonogram will a cystoscopy still be done?  I have a feeling the answer is , “yes” though I am hoping not!

Will the dr. talk to me about the sonogram before doing the dreaded test? 

Also, I have a headache from all the worrying I’ve done and was wondering if it would be okay to take Advil.  I know w/ some tests, you shouldn't take anything prior.

Words cannot begin to express how thankful I will be when this is over!  I just pray nothing is wrong.  That is what I’m most worried about.

      ps should say none problematic, as near all are, think only ones who have problems are those who are in severe pain when scope done which might make it sore, but for most easy

      Thank you for your help.  I think what you say about those who get sore may have more initial pain/ irritation is true.  I will have a numbing gel.  Thank you for taking the time to message me.

      Hi my second cystascope was without anascetic, and l was anxious about it , including embarresment aspect, but even that was fine, doc and two nurses who chatted, he did use the gel, the cold shock of it the most uncomfortable part of it, but it amazed me how quick he inserted the camera and l never felt a thing, over in 5min, good luck

      My procedure is now over!   The only discomfort (if you want to call it that) was the moving around of the camera.  It didn’t hurt just gave a “sore-like” feeling.  When it was removed, I felt no pain.  It felt similar to getting a pap smear.  The first few times of going to the bathroom burned, but now it is fine.  I have drank water and cranberry juice.  I was given one Cipro and 2 packages of Uribel.  Every once in awhile I feel a little twinge in that area but nothing bad.  My ultrasound was good along with that once dreaded cystoscopy.  I am thankful for the good news and that it is over!  Thank you for sharing to ease my mind.  It does help knowing you are not alone and others understand the anxiety.​
