Hi all. I had a rigid cysto under general anaesthetic two days ago and thought I'd share as I suffer with anxiety and was terrified beforehand having read about experiences of the after pain to the point where I was crying I before went in. I almost didn't go through with but I did.
The actual procedure was totally painless- i knew nothing about it whatsoever apart from when I felt a tiny sting in my hand then I was knocked out until I woke up in recovery. So please do not worry for anyone going to have the same you will not feel a thing.
Regarding after pain this I believe varies on what they find/what's carried out during your procedure and of course everyone's different. In my case two biopsys were taken and pending official results IC is suspected.
Yes on the day I had the procedure it did hurt to pass urine and there was some blood due to biopsys. However I must stress it wasn't unbearable pain..it was painful yes but not as bad as I built myself up for and the next day pain was gone. To describe the pain it's like urinating through sharp points but with some teeth gritting you deal with it.
This is from someone that can't take pain very well. If you have any questions regarding the rigid cysto please ask away but please don't be scared out of your mind about having one Like me I was way too on edge before i went in.
I have been given vesicare to take 5mg to regulate the bladder however I haven't take it as yet as I'm a scaredy cat with new medication, is anyone on vesicare and what are your experiences with it?
