Does it hurt to get a cystoscopy with retrograde pyelography done?

Does it hurt to get a cystoscopy with retrograde pyelography done?

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?

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 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

Do I have to get some blood tests before doing an intravenous pyelography ivp?

Do I have to get some blood tests before doing an intravenous pyelography ivp?

Yes: The dye used for an ivp can be harmful to the kidney; the risk for harm is greater if you have reduced kidney function or diabetes. If there is any concern that you have actual kidney disease, your level of kidney function should be evaluated by checking the creatinine level in your blood. Ultrasound or noncon ct may provide similar information without contrast dye. ...Read more

I was prescribed percocets for pain but the pharmacy closed. Can I use my Aleve till the morning? I had cystoscopy left retrograde today.

Post-cystoscopy pain: If Percocet was prescribed for post-op pain, should be okay to skip it. Tylenol should be safe. Aleve can be taken if not has stopped or okayed by your doctor. In short, not sure Percocet is needed for this without knowing more detail. ...Read more

Marijuana: Each state specifies different conditions as indications for medical marijuana use. However, i know of no states that would consider acute discomfort from a medical procedure to be an indication. It does have some chronic pain indications. 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?

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 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
