1 doctor agrees

In brief: Indication 4 surgery

Cystoscope is a surgical procedure with risk.
Before signing consent, have family with you to ask surgeon these questions. Understand your risk/benefit analysis. Typically the cystoscope allows views of the inside lining, not provided on ct and kub, with access to remove objects, place stent, take biopsy, make additional recommendations. Kub and ct may show obstruction, scope can correct.
