scared

hello new here. this is not completely to do with women's health but if feel better talking to women about this. I am having a cystoscopy next week and not looking forward to it. I made the mistake of going onto google and finding out what it entailed , now I'm more worried. (I hate google). I have a husband and other people that care about me but I don't want to show them how scared I am because I don't want them to worry. Sometimes it's easier to talk to strangers.

  • I had a cystoscopy few months ago and as you are was pretty apprehensive, however the procedure really is much easier than you are currently imagining.

    The actually cytoscopy took no more than 5 mins, ( there was ct scan and couple of xrays prior) it was a little uncomfortable as makes you need a wee. Afterwards did have issues with frequency for couple of hours but I often have that anyway and it soon cleared up .

    There was a couple of nurses in there and they were lovely even offered to hold my hand!

    Just one of those things that needs to be done but genuinely don't let yourself get scared or upset about it as it really is not bad at all .

    Good Luck , you'll be fine.
