So I saw a urologist this last Monday and he attempted to perform a cystoscopy but was unable to due to my urethra being too small. The attempt was horribly painful and now I have a planned surgery of dilation and the cystoscopy.
Has anyone heard of this procedure and have any insight of what to expect?
My biggest concern is the pain post-op and having to have a catheter in for a few days while my urethra is already sore and even more sensitive.
The doctor thinks it's likely the original stricture could have been caused by a poorly placed catheter along with scaring from an appendectomy so I'm already holding a grudge against catheters in general.
If anyone has any insight into this procedure please let me know. Very much appreciated.
