I have known since before Christmas that I was to have a flexible cystoscopy to find the cause for my microscopic hematuria. The closer the date came (4th March) the more stressed out I got. In the end I thought that nothing is worth the stress and I saw a consultant urologist privately and he is doing the procedure on 13th March with conscious sedation. He was lovely and so reassuring and I do feel able to go through with it now. I believe that having a rapport with the consultant and trusting them is an enormous help when it comes to operations and procedures. It may seem like a waste of money to some people, when my 4th March date was on NHS, but if it cancels out the stress and worry I think it is worth it. The NHS refused to give me the option of any anaesthetic except numbing gel. I know many of you have coped just fine with the gel but I just want to be pain free and not remember any of it!! x
