    Can you describe the procedure? Is it painful? How long does it last?

    Sedated it's not painful. With only lidocaine jelly squeezed up your urethra it is. Mine lasted around 8 minutes. Next time I'll pay for it to be done at the hospital sedated.

    I had it done some years back without sedation. Basically, they slide this catheter (thin plastic tube) up your urethra, pump your bladder full of water, look around in there with a scope, and then drain your bladder. The process of sliding the catheter in and out is no fun. The rest is no big deal. Not the worst pain I ever felt, and even having been through it, would probably decline sedation and its associated risks if I had to do it again. As said, no fun, though, either. Kind of depends upon your tolerance for pain. I'd call mine moderate.

    What sucked more for me is the fact that sliding the catheter in and out leaves your urethra raw in some spots, and for the next couple of days, when you have to piss, it's like you're urinating battery acid.

    Had one done last month. I'll never have it done again without sedation! I have since changed urologists.

    Had discomfort, not pain. It does burn a little when you pee for the next 24 hours but no big deal.
    Had kidney stones removed many years ago useing a probe inserted in the urethra and was totally out. Proceedure was drastic but the stones were killing me and would have endured most anything for some relief. My urologist wanted me to have a spinal and he had already explained what he was goin to do. I told him that I didn't want to be awake while he rammed a rod up my dick and fished around for anything. I got knocked out.
    Ask for a Valium before and for after and you will fine.

    Just had it done last week. I opted for the jelly and no anesthesia. Yeah, it burns to urinate for about 12 hours, but its really not that bad. It helps if you can relax, but I know that is easy to say and difficult to do. I've had the anesthesia in a hospital setting and prefer to go to the doctor's office. Anesthesia usually requires a hospital setting. The problem with that is the time it takes, and someone has to drive you home and you'll be dopey afterward. Hospital ORs often get backed up, and remember laying on a gurney for 4 hours because of an emergency. Plus there is more risk of infection. If you can stand the thought of what's going on I recommend the office visit. Remember that you're going to be sore for 12 to 24 hours either way.

    I had that done b/c I had genital warts in my urethra. I know...gross. I never knew they could grow there. Anyone else had that? Anyway...I had it done as an outpatient at the hospital. Put me to sleep and woke up with a bigger dick (swollen). Just wished it stayed that way. Didn't burn when peeing afterwards. Got lucky I guess. Haven't had them since..been 10 years now. I didn't even know you could have it done the way the others here described with the gels and what not. That sounds painful.

    I have had it done twice. I don't know the medical term for my problem - but it is esentially like a hole in the bladder lining. I can't ejaculate (anymore) but can have the feeling. I asked my urealogist where the sperm went and he told me it came out when pissing.

    The worse part was having a young good-looking female do the prep. I'd rather have a stud. :tongue:

    i hated having them done!! before i was given a clean bill of health from doctors, i had about 2-3 done a year!!! doing it sedated is fine, you just wake up with a tube up your penis and your like WTF. having it done awake sucks because you have to sit still the entire time!!!! the after effects are HORRID!!!! dispelling the water that they have pumped into your bladder is like peeing with a match being held at the tip of your penis for like 2-4 days!!!!

    just had a cystoscopy 2 days ago right in the dr. office I had to lay back and the nurse had to fill my penis with some kind of gel and put a clamp on the edge so it won't leak out then the dr came in and put the scope in its not that bad its a soft plastic catether and it only takes about 3 min for him to look around and done no anesthesia or anything , I had a bearable burning not very bad when I urinated the first 2 days but now its all back to normal , I'll always have it done this way from now on

    I had it done a while ago. They catheterized me, which was not that bad. I was anesthetized. It was all done, because I had a gray area on a CAT scan, between my kidney and ureter, not urethra, so they were going through the bladder and up towards the kidney with the scope.
    Apparently I went south on them, the 4th or 5th time the doctor tried to put the scope in the ureter. They gave me succhanocoline, which they would not ordinarily do.
    When I woke, I had to piss so bad, it was unbelievable. By the time someone could get there, I had pissed myself involuntarily. Bladder agony was mild compared to the razor blade feeling of pissing.
    I had not been aware of the many attempts, nor of the anesthesia. The next day, I was in so much pain, I could not chew a bean, nor push a shopping cart. I felt like 20 guys had beat the shit out of me, while I was under. I got painkillers from my regular doctor (a saint). Every single muscle from my waist up ached. My wife did some research, and found that this is a reaction to succhanocoline.
    I had prostate surgery not long afterward. I requested that they not use succhanocoline. The anesthesiologist said, "They would never have used it on you, for a cystoscopy." When he looked up the records, it had been used.

    You are describing a ureteroscopy, which is more invasive and involved than cystoscopy. Ureteroscopy is always under general anesthesia and perhaps you were given succinylcholine due to muscular contractions that made the surgeon unable to get the scope in the tube.
