So the dreaded day of the cystoscopy is here. I have it a little later today at 3.30. I know it's a simple and normal procedures to have which is done under local anaesthetic but as I've been having such pain and aching and soreness in my bladder, along with stabbing pains and burning in my urethra I'm absolutely petrified that it's still going to be so uncomfortable and might make my symptoms so much worse. Especially afterwards.
I'm so scared about the outcome. For the past 6 months or so, not only had my endometriosis flared up with a vengeance but my polycystic ovaries have been causing me havoc too. And then my bladder has just been another level painful. I have to go 30 times a day, can only Empty a small amount of urine which burns and stings and my bladder aches along with sharp stabbing pains. After months of anti biotics and constantly finding blood and such in my tests I've been at a bit of a loss. I've got some bladder and kidney scans in the next few weeks too, assuming the cystoscopy might not help or discover anything. thats the scariest of all that they'll tell me there's nothing wrong and I'll feel even more insane :(.
Also it was mentioned the problems could be endo of the bladder related. I know this says it's uncommon but I can't understand what else it could really be. Has anyone has this?
I'm petrified and have been googling and youtubing myself into oblivion. Any advice would be brilliant.
I'll keep everyone updated with how I go on. Ultimately I just hope I get some answers as I can't live like this anymore.
