Kidney Pain After Cystoscopy
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

It typically improves within 24-48 hours with hydration and pain control. Good luck! ...Read more
