I'm 59 y/o male and had a cystoscopy today - yes i was apprehensive and nervous despite reading much on here before hand - but it really was a walk in the park. The worst part is the administration of the local anesthetic gel and even that was no big deal and only a very minor discomfort The procedure from dropping my trousers/ pants , local anesthetic , camera tube in/out was less than 5 minutes and my bladder was completely clear.
During the procedure water was inserted into the bladder via the camera tube after which the doc told me to empty my bladder as soon as the procedure was finished. About 5-10mins afterwards i again felt an urge to pee urgently , but there was nothing there - only a slight burning sensation in my urethra I attempted to have a pee - apparently that's the effect of the anesthetic gel some of which remains in the urethra. For anyone worried about the prodecure then dont be - as someone mentioned on here , a scale and polish at the dentist is worse.
