A few things. : Cystoscopies are commonly office procedures. You will be asked to undress, put on a gown, then lie on table or chair. Your groin is prepped with antiseptic solution. A numbing gel may be placed in your urethra. A cystoscope will be placed into the bladder by the urologist; the initial entry is the most uncomfortable part. Irrigating fluid will enter your bladder. You may get an antibiotic.
