Has anyone had a cystoscopy done? I think that's how it's spelled. I'm having urinary trouble. And am having to get one.

I'm having some urinary difficulties. One is urinary incontinence, and the other is that I keep having utis with blood and my bladder never feeling empty. My urologist is doing a cystoscopy and a urodynamics test on me. Anyone ever had any of these?

  • Yes, it's No big deal. It's painless Some Dr.'s put you to sleep and some just numb you up. Either way you should be relaxed and not worried. It wont hurt.

  • Yes. It's quick and simply a telescope into the bladder via the urethra. It's done under sterile technique in a doctor's office or operating room sometimes. The physician will be able to tell you what he/she sees and will take a sample of urine. Hope they find out what the problem is and correct it tout suite!
