Cystoscopy With Retrograde
Urethrogram 2 ways: Urethra filled by retrograde instillation of x-ray contrast, in males, through a foley catheter inflated just inside urethral opening or with a special retrograde urethrogram device attached to a syringe filling urethra and bladder until bladder full & patient voids. Or in both sexes bladder filled via a catheter which is then removed & urethra then filled from below by syringe.Best urethral pics. ...Read more
Dye to &from bladder: Retrograde urethrogram performed be retrograde instillation of urographic contrast medium (dye) from urethral meatus (opening) backwards up the bladder. Voiding cystourethrogram is performed by having a small catheter passed up urethra into th bladder which is then filled with contrast until full and subject then urinates whilst entire study is monitored by xray fluoroscopy. ...Read more
Urinary problems: A retrograde urethrogram is when a tiny catheter is put into the opening of the urethra (penis in males) and pictures are taken as the dye is injected backwards. A voiding study is the opposite, contrast is put into the bladder with a catheter and pictures are taken as the patient pees the contrast out. ...Read more

Hi doc, I have been diagnosed with bladder neck obstuction after retrograde urethrogram and uroflow tests.Rgu suggested no strictures. Imfeelingpain?
Here is what I ...: Experiencing painful voiding after diagnostic procedures through the urethra is expected, will ease, and eventually disappeared with variable pace among individuals, usually within 1-2 days, and medication such as Pyridium and Flomax (tamsulosin) may help ease it. Yet, one has to relate the visible bladder neck obstruction with its functional impact onto personal voiding. Detailing? Ask doc timely. Best wish. ...Read more

Here are some ...: For postvoid incontinence, I assumed you have so-called postvoid dribbling after you ripped in the penis into underwaer, which is indeed very annoying. You may try correctly milking the entirely urethra after each voiding by wiping the urethra x 3-4 times from the area behind scrotum toward the end of penis until "dryness" before zipping in the penis. Do this first. Due to 400-letter limit, end .. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately no.: Flomax or tamsulosin relaxes the smooth muscle of the prostate to improve urine flow in men with enlarged prostates. There is likely some small effect on the ureters and urethra as well. However, a stricture is usually a fixed obstruction with elements of scar tissue that would not respond to a medication like flomax. ...Read more
Absolutely: An ERCP is a test used to diagnose obstructions of the bile duct system. Sometimes an ERCP can be used to dislodge a gallstone stuck in the main bile duct. Sometimes a stent can be placed via ERCP into the main bile duct to relieve pressure as in an obstructing cancer. Ercp is one of the truly amazing advances endoscopic medicine has allowed. ...Read more

Can Cystoscopy lead to urethral stricture in future ? (after 2-3 months of cystoscopy or more)
as i feel pain in penis now, done cystoscopy in past?
Rare, but depend...: Urethral stricture (scar) may rarely occur reflecting the types-rigid or flexible-of scope used, the times of scoping, personal anatomical variation, & personal healing ability. For one at 27 without prior urethritis & instrumentation, the cause for recurrent voiding usually results from poor relaxation in prostate urethra. More?

Probably not..., but: If done at right time, cystoscopy may evidence mucosal inflmmation to suggest urethritis or prostatitis. But, most of times, both can be diagnosed with good history, physical finding, urinalysis, and others as needed. And cystoscopy is only needed for protracted cases to rule out stricture. To detail both, go to see urologist timely. Best wishes... ...Read more

Can if awake: Passage of cystoscope can be uncomfortable or painful, more so for men who should request use of a flexible cystoscope. Kidney pelvis distention can cause flank pain during the retrograde injection of contrast medium. We always do it under general anesthesia for children. Women could request that urologist uses a pediatric cystoscope which is much slimmer + would be much more comfortable. ...Read more
Having very bad kidney pain. I had a cystoscopy left retrograde. What can I do besides taking percocets. It's hurts so bad?
Ureteral Colic: 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

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

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
