  • 3rd cysto/hydro

    I had my 3rd cysto/hydro done on Thursday and just wanted to let everyone know that one bad experience doesn't mean all will be bad. I had such a horrid experience with the first it took me some convincing by my current doc to have another one. I did pretty well with that one even though had another surgery at the same time. This time he asked a uro he referred me to do this one for his opinion that there is nothing else wrong. I was very scared not knowing this doc very well. He turned out to be terrific and I left the hospital pain free!! He even called himself the next day to make sure I was ok.
    I had this done at the hospital where I work and was a little leary as I have so many problems with the staff I supervise. The nurses in that dept. were exceptional. They were so caring and made sure I got something to calm me down. Most of them didn't even know I work there although the recovery nurse recognized me. Instead of the usual morphine the doc ordered fentanyl for pain. None of the usual n/v or itching. I was able to eat as soon as I got home. Even felt like fixing it myself. A word of caution: I felt so good I over did things the next day and felt a little icky by Saturday morning.
    I have had a very hard time with doctors, hospitals, etc. and I know that there are many more out there like me. It has taken me a long time to trust current doc even a little. I hope that by sharing I can alleviate someone else's fears.

        Cystoscopy/Hydro...Oh my!
        It makes my bladder feel normal again.
        The first time I had it done, I felt great for a month.
        Second time only lasted few days.
        Third time lasted a week.
        I hear people feel great up to 6 months!
