This is a question you should be asking your urologist. They have a much better idea of your condition.

The scope is no fun but, I describe it as uncomfortable. No, I do not look forward to them as I have had 17-20 of these. I remind myself it is the prostate that causes most of this and that takes 15-20 seconds and it is basically over as the rest is OK. Sometimes there is irritation for 6-12 hours when I void. THAT is peace of mind and if that is the worst I will face give it to me. Cystectomy, chemo etc. THAT is pain and you and I have seen too many go through that.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

I meant to say is there any way to have a cystoscopy at the doctors office with no pain.

For some reason It really hurts when I have a cystoscopy? I could have a smaller uretha

I think a male should answer this. I thank you anyway.

Cystoscopy is not done with sedation. Cystoscopy is done in the urologist's office where a very small camera is inserted into the bladder so that the doctor can see inside. For some patients, more so with males, this can be uncomfortable.

IF something is seen that "shouldn't be there" a TURB is scheduled (transurethral resection of the bladder.) This is done under a light general anesthetic because the urologist is going to cut out as much of the tumor as he can as well as take sample of other areas of the bladder lining, These are sent to the pathologist for analysis. After the TURB the urologist may have a pretty good idea of what is going on, but ONLY AFTER THE REPORT COMES BACK FROM THE PATHOLOGIST IS IT POSSIBLE FOR AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS TO BE MADE. This may take up to a week.

Since the TURB is done under sedation, you will not feel any pain. I woke up, went home and took a nap, and resumed all normal activity. Very occasionally, in complicated cases, a patient may stay overnight or go home with a catheter, but this is not usual.

You will be fine
