In september on 2018 I had a cystopscopy examination done. I didn't fine the procedure painful, just uncomfortable. He used two tubes on local don into my urethra and used a flexible scope. It did not hurt to urinate, and there was no blood after. What really bothered me was the fact that for the next 2 hours after the scope, the tip of my penis and urethra were swollen. It looked abnormal. best was to describe it was that my urethra looked like it had botox, and it looked very puffy. I found it hard to pee afterwards but it's something about the gel they use that seems to make it very hard for me to pee after I have anything done. During my urodymics test, She used one tube of local. I felt no pain as it was inserted until she hit something that made me flinch. Later that day I had some mild burning when I urinated and then I saw a small drop of blood in my urine, but that was it - day 2 was fine.
My concern is that I now have a stricture caused from the swelling of my urethra. I have read that a scope can indeed cause a stricture. 3 months after the scope I had to start sitting down to urinate. I also now have hesitancy, but I don't know how much of that is psychological as if I think about it it becomes worse, and sometimes I don't have it at all. One thing that bothers me is that fact that I sometimes have A LOT of urine left over in my urethra along with ejaculation. There seems to be 1-2 drops left over in my penile urethra after I void, or something it can be completely full. I have to milk it out which is annoying. There also seems to be some left over in the bulbar urethra.
Did any of you have a swollen urethra after your scope? Some men say they didn't but did have blood and burning for days and weeks, and a few have said they had a puffy urethra for a few days. Do you think it's likely that I have developed a stricture near the tip of my penis? Did the urodynamics test possibly cause one in the bulbar? My flow is strange. It's up and down. Sometimes it comes out fast, other times average, and then it dribbles. I'm 33 and don't have BPH but have been diagnosed with "chronic non-bacterial prostititis". I hate having to pee sitting down, and dealing with this massive after dribble at my age.
