    Far Worse In Theory Than Reality

    As a guy, there are probably few medical procedures more cringe-inducing than a cystoscopy – when a urologist uses a scope to look up the urethra and into the bladder.  Having just gone through the process myself, I decided to blog about this private experience.  Why...

    Mine Today

    That hurt!Well, okay.  It was certainly uncomfortable, at the very least.  Purpose was to check out what was called a "mass" in the bladder; turned out the bladder is fine, it was the prostate enlarging and growing into the bladder.  So, time for some pills to see if we can...

    Cystoscopy Female 41

    I had the test because of hematuria - microscopic blood in my urine. It was really very easy on and painless. It was mildly uncomfortable and of course some what embarrassing, but do not stress over this test. Good news for me - all came out fine. Good luck and relax.
