Study of kidneys and: Normally the kidneys and ureters are studied by IVP exam where contrast is injected into veins and excreted by the kidneys.

Having very bad kidney pain. I had a cystoscopy left retrograde. What can I do besides taking percocets. It's hurts so bad?
If you only had a retrograde without a stent, your pain can be related to some swelling where the ureter enters the bladder. This can cause delayed pain after the procedure. Increasing water intake and taking aleve (naproxen) twice a day with food is what I recommend to my patients with similar symptoms.
If there is a stent present then medications (? -blockers +/- bladder spasm medications) help a bunch. ...Read more

So - would not recommend it's use for this specific purpose. Please talk to your physician if your pain is inadequately controlled. Take care. ...Read more
I'm having very immense kidney pain from a cystoscopy with left retrograde. The percocets aren't working. If I go to the ER what would they do?
See below: They will probably check for UTI (urinalysis) and check blood work, as well as a renal us or possibly ct to see if your kidney is swollen (aka hydronephrosis). Transient ureteral obstruction related to internal swelling can occur from time to time after procedures such as the one you had. It typically improves within 24-48 hours with hydration and pain control. Good luck! ...Read more

No, ...: Surgically induced retrograde ejaculation can not be amended to attest: Life is a one-way street of accumulation, modification, & continuation.

Last night I took an Aleve (naproxen) for pain of cystoscopy retrograde. I took 4 percocets & I went to the ER for a shot of toradol. I am now extremelyy sleepy.
Cystoscopy pain: Pain after a cystoscop y is short lived. Rest and mild analgesics should help. 4 percocets, alive and toradol would make anyone drowsy. Should go away within 8-12 hrs unless you continue to take percocet. Take only one every 8 hrs rather than 4 at a time. See your urologist if pain persists beyond 3 days for reevaluation ...Read more
