I had a cystoscopy with a flexible tube at [color=orange:882b482753]******* [/color:882b482753]Hospital this morning. I had been very anxious for the week or so since I learnt I was to undergo this procedure, so I was hardly in a state to relax. Also, I remembered grimly some very painful smear tests I'd suffered in the past.
However, to my surprise I found the procedure was completely painless; I didn't even realize the doctor had inserted the tube at first. The only sensation I had was one of slight cold - and I felt a slight movement when he swivelled the camera, though it wasn't in the least unpleasant. And it took only about three or four minutes. I was amazed.
Also, no burning sensation on urination afterwards.
This is my experience, anyway - I hope yours is as comfortable.
