Having a cystoscopy done in a few days to confirm IC diagnosis. They will use some local anesthetic to guide scope. How painful will this be?

Being subjective: sensation, I don't think it would be possible to predict your individual response and qualify it as a discomfort or pain. Having said that, it might be reassuring for you to know that application of local anesthetic gel on mucosal surface is usually very effective and a lot of patients do tolerate similar procedures without any major problems. You are the patient and you are in control, good luck. ...Read more

I had an ecoli UTI now a painful swollen urethra & burning, but normal urinalysis, is it ok to do have a cystoscopy if i feel im very swollen?

Why a cystroscopy: What indications for cystoscopy? Have you had recurrent utis or other bladder related problems. Might you have a yeast infection or an std? Have you had a urine culture done since completing treatment for uti? Am sceptical about need for cysto in a healthy 27-y-o.

I have a UTI since last November. I have been on 4 anti biotics and also had a Cystoscopy (nothing was picked up). I still have blood in my urine& i have been put on antibiotics again. Now my back is painful and has a burning sensation. Any ideas?

Needs review: To have this kind of trouble means you need specialist care. Some people have many UTIs related to structural factors, (fortunately your cystoscopy looked normal), hydration status (it's important to drink, drink, drink), hygiene issues (important to pee after sex for example), bacterial or other host factors. Hopefully you can see an Infectious Diseases specialist who may be able to help. ...Read more
