Does anyone really know what this is? And is it necessary? I am just trying to understand all this.

Re: Cystoscopy

Oh this is one thing I can tell you about. They have to look inside your bladder to make sure that there aren't any growths and everything is fine so that you can prevent from having another surgery. if they find something that way they can fix it at the time of your scheduled surgery. i just had mine done on Friday. I could not sleep at night thinking about it being done. I was terrified. It was just fine nothing to worry about. It did not hurt at all. I have bladder and uterus stage 4 prolapse and it was over in no time. Well worth it. Just afterward when you go to urinate it may be a little discomfort at the start but the more you go the less it gets. Drink plenty of water and it helps.

Re: Cystoscopy

Did you have it done at the time of your hysterectomy? How long was your recovery time? I believe that I am having a TLH. Does this include the removal of your cervix as well?

Re: Cystoscopy

Welcome Purple39. I've had this done several times over the past 10 years or so. There really isn't anything to it. They fill your bladder with fluid and view it on a screen to check for issues. No pain at all just the sensation to urinate since ur bladder is full. As barbaranna stated once done urinating may be a bit uncomfortable but gets better each time you go. If you are having this done during your surgery you won't remember it at all. I believe TLH does include the removal of your cervix.
Make sure you continue to read this site and post all questions. You will find all the support and answers right here. This is a wonderful site and I would not have gotten through my surgery without help from my hystersisters!

Re: Cystoscopy

I had it done in the Dr. office, no viewing it on the screen though he just looked through the scope. I was terrified but it was all for nothing
