How long Does it take to heal from Cystoscopy?

These symptoms should get better in 1 or 2 days. You will be able to go back to work for usual activities in 1 or 2 days

What type of procedure does a Urologist perform?

When you visit a urologist, they’ll start by doing one or more of these tests to find out what condition you have:

Imaging tests, such as a CT Scan, MRI Scan, or Ultrasound, allow them to see inside your urinary tract.
They can order a cystogram, which involves taking x-ray images of your bladder.
Your urologist can perform a Cystoscopy. This involves using a thin scope called a cystoscope to see the inside of your urethra and bladder.
They can perform a post-void residual urine test to find out how fast urine leaves your body during urination. It also shows how much urine is left in your bladder after you urinate.
They can use a urine sample to check your urine for bacteria that cause infections.
They can perform urodynamic testing to measure the pressure and volume inside your bladder.
Urologists are also trained to perform different types of surgery. This may include performing:

Biopsies of the bladder, kidneys, or prostate.
A cystectomy, which involves removing the bladder, to treat cancer.
Extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy, which involves breaking up kidney stones so they can remove them more easily.
A kidney transplant, which involves replacing a diseased kidney with a healthy one.
A procedure to open a blockage.
A repair of damage due to injury.
A repair of urinary organs that aren’t well-formed.
A prostatectomy, which involves removing all or part of the prostate gland to treat prostate cancer.
A sling procedure, which involves using strips of mesh to support the urethra and keep it closed to treat urinary incontinence.
Transurethral resection of the prostate, which involves removing excess tissue from an enlarged prostate.
Transurethral needle ablation of the prostate, which involves removing excess tissue from an enlarged prostate.
A ureteroscopy, which involves using a scope to remove stones in the kidneys and ureter.
A vasectomy to prevent pregnancy, which involves cutting and tying the vas deferens or the tube sperm travel through to produce semen.
 

What will a urologist do on the first visit?

They take your history and examine you. They also suggest few investigations as required.
