You should tell your doctor about any existing health problems and medications you’re taking. Ask your doctor if you should stop any medications before the procedure.
Your cystoscopy may be postponed if you have an infection of the bladder, prostate or urethra.
You may need to have blood tests, imaging and/or an ECG.
If you’re having a rigid cystoscopy, you’ll meet your anaesthetist to discuss anaesthesia for your procedure.
If you’re having general anaesthesia or sedation, you’ll need to arrange for someone to take you home after your procedure, as you’ll be unable to drive.
