Well I went ahead and had the test done today. It was a piece of cake. I was worried about nothing. The worst part was the worring about it. The only discomfort was when they went by the prostate, but that just barely stung a little. Found a small 2mm tumor and they will take it out next month. Glad I did not chicken out. Don't anyone worry about the test, do it if thats what they want to do. Thanks all for your replys.
My reaction was "you wanna stick what where?" I am apprehensive every time I have to have a tube stuck there but DEATH might be the alternative. It would be a slow death spread over quite some time. In the last 8 months, I have had 3 cystoscopies, 4 bladder resections and 6 bcg treatments. And a stent removed. 18 times they have been up there, 3 of them awake. Think of it as a test. You will pass it. Breath deeply. You can do this.
Sounds like your first experience at using that thing down there for medical purposes. It's a handy, short, direct route into the bladder, the place where you want to look right now for possibe problems, and get answers. And you'll get to enjoy the TV show with your doctor. My BCG's was the first time at being awake for inserting things up in there. But I didn't watch either! Next week is my first Cysto being awake, and I'm looking forward to the camera view. Please update us on your experience, and, the results. RB
