AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Ever had a cystoscopy? I don't recommend it. If you don't know what a cystoscopy is, just back away slowly and forget that you read this.

Cystoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the interior lining of the bladder and the urethra.

Still not sure, but it sounds painful! Sorry.

Why would one have such a procedure? I mean, it doesn't sound like something that is a first line of investigation for a particular symptom. . .

HIPAA isn't just a good idea, it's the law. Now you have to bleach your eyeballs, shame on you.

oh, fling, or flint...whatever your name is.

Women can have them as well as men. Women have bladders; it's just the journey to get there is faster for women than for (most) men.

They were checking my bladder wall for CA. A cystoscopy is like any 'scope: colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, endoscopy...

when Brianna and others here have been going through chemo and all sort sof other "fun stuff" ...

I know, Flint. I know.

















Actually, that adage applies to everybody. I just returned from my eye doctor...his assistant was telling me her mother is dealing with colon cancer. They cut a hole in her so big that now she has NO control over her bowels. I asked if the large Depends work and the assist. said, "well, they get some of it....but, not all. My mother won't leave the house now; she's too embarrassed," and I felt like a complete ass for bitching about my situation. All I have to do is wear a wig when I go out---not wonder if my gut is going to slide down my legs...poor woman. I said a prayer for her then and there.

Oh dear Flint
I assume they stuck a needle up your Japs eye?

If it's any comfort, we women have to have a smear every three years, which is also uncomfortable, and if the nurse is rough it can be downright painful.

I had a nasty one once when I was off to see a new paramour. Left blood spots in my nice new lacy knickers. She's still on my hit list.
