  • cysto scheduled

    Well I finally got a doc who is actually going to look at my bladder! I have never had a cysto. They didn't tell me to have anyone bring me home or anything like that. What should I expect for after this happens. I understand there will be some pain and bleeding. I have vicodin from my kidney issues so hopefully that will help. Do you think I will be able to go to work ok the next day. I am teaching summer school so it is just half days.

    I had a cystoscopy last week and my doctor said it takes about two days to recover. I initially felt great (with pain meds) the morning after the surgery, so I went shopping with my mom, but by that afternoon I was feeling pretty miserable. I'm sure everyone reacts differently to the procedure, but it's probably best to give yourself one day to rest before you return to work.

      If its in-office then you certainly can go by yourself. However if its in a hospital/outpatient setting then you're going to have to bring someone with you since you wont be able to drive due to anesthesia.

        If you can manage to relax, the office cysto isn't bad. If you've ever been catheterized, it's comparable to that. After I had my first one, I went back to work and finished out my day then drove home. I was a little painful, but not horrible.

        Warm hugs,
        Stay safe

          I've had three in office procedures, they numbed up my bladder so it was ok.
