OT Cystocopy

Postby Wolfpac » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:34 am

Hi lads, just out of interest, has anybody ever had to have a cystoscopy? I’ve just had a call from Heath Hospital for an appointment to check my bladder as I think I passed a kidney stone last month, doctor referred me to urologist as I had blood in urine, I’m relatively young (34), my lifestyle isn’t bad (don’t drink or smoke) but my diets poor which is why I think I’ve had some kidney pain, just a little worried by the procedure as they have to insert a camera into my urethra, it’s apparently a quick 5 minute procedure, if anybody has had one, what can I expect.

Don't worry about it quite painless they spray a local anesthetic. If you have a diet high in fat could be one of the reasons, but what you should be doing is drinking 8 glasses of water a day, would certainly help your condition if it is kidney stones :thumbup:

Thanks mate, just been informed by a guy in work it’s slightly uncomfortable but painless nonetheless, certainly made me think about my lifestyle, have started drinking more water, gonna try the 8 glasses a day to be sure, thanks mate

When I saw your post headline, I thought it was yet another foreign player we were being linked to. On a more serious note, my brother-in-law had one recently, and said it was'nt too bad, nowhere near as uncomfortable as when he actually passed his kidney stone.

I’ve had it done. It was horrible. But I am a big baby though. They wanted me to have another and I thought the first one bad enough so never went for the second one and hoped the problem would sort it’s sel out which it did. Not the most m painful thing but incredibly uncomfortable, especially when they fill you with water. Thought I was going to piss all over the nurses and doctor when they pulled it out. Lol.

I feel for you mate.

So if you boys are unaware, as you get older, doctors are going to want to do things to you that are unnatural. Firstly, as a test for prostate cancer they will tell you to bend over and stick a finger up your buthole and feel around. If you have an enlarged prostate (many men do) they will prescribe pills that might help. If they do not, then they will probably want to carry out a procedure known as a cystocopy. This involves inserting a small camera on the end of a tube up your uretha (piss hole). It is an uncomfortable procedure. They will use a lube / anesthetic and the suspense is the worst part. Once it's in they will look at the inside of your bladder. Getting it past the prostate is not good and pulling it out is tense. Sometimes they rinse out your bladder with warm water. Sounds dreadful and more uncomfortable than painful but the alternative is death from prostate cancer, getting up to pee five times in the night or a pecker that fails to become a wood pecker.
