Mine was in the office with an area pain killer so I knew what was going on and watched the screen. My urologist explained it all to me before going ahead. He said although I would probably feel it a bit it wouldn't be defined as pain. I think he was right. The fear I had was what generated the pain. It is just a procedure you just don't like to think about- that is it is normal to grit you teeth and feel pain even though there is none. Good luck with your results on the 14th & I hope you can post that everything is good.

Hey guys, I have been a lurker for a couple of years now and posted once thinking I was going to need Neo bladder surgery. Turns out with a second opinion it wasn't invasive so had several rounds of Mitomycin in 2008. So far so good but going back on the 14th for my 6 month check-up. My question is I now have a new urologist, my old one retired recently, and for the past 2 years I have been fortuate enough to be put to sleep during my cysto procedure. Starting now my new doctor does all his in the office. I would like to know what to expect from the cysto while being awake. I am a little nervous about it for some reason. Thanks
