Re update: GA and Rigid Cystoscopy

Hi there, just thought i would message with an update from the last few days. Went into hospital on Friday for the above! All went well, had to have a urethral dilatation, which isnt as bad as it sounds. I've also been told I have overactive bladder.

GA was fine, no problems, the hospital staff was fantastic i didn't feel nervous at all!! there were others around me who seemed more upset.

The procedure took around 45 minutes, i was taken back into recovery where i had a hot chocolate and biscuits, no complaints there

I guess sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem. My advice is if you are going for GA please dont worry, u will be looked after

GA (General Anesthetic)

I must admit, going through that nightmare of having that done, I am suprised no one has wished me well : ( and the fact it was good news.

Well one person did, and thank you so much : )

Re: Re update: GA and Rigid Cystoscopy

Hi there

Sometimes posts get missed so I am sorry no-one replied.

I am so pleased all was ok and sorry if we didn't reply at the time - I have my own reasons as I was busy - so can't answer for others but you did the right thing to make it active again.

Congratulations anyway

Unhappy Re: Re update: GA and Rigid Cystoscopy

Thanks for this - i'm going in for a GA cystoscopy and urethral dilation tomorrow and this had helped to calm my nerves. I'm very worried about the pain afterwards, and of waking up in pain and nobody being there to help me.

I also have a slight sore throat today which is worrying me too. I can't reschedule as I live alone with family abroad and it took a long time to get a date together where they could do it and when someone would be available to take me home and stay with me for the first 24 hours.

I just can't wait for it to be over now....
