Post subject: PVP, cystoscopy with anesthesia
Reply to jlandy Reply with quote





I have had very painful experiences with cystoscopy and, separately,
catheterization. As I approach PVP, I wonder if people have had
experience with anesthesia for PVP, cystoscopy, catheterization? If
so, what kind of anesthesia? And do you know a urologist in New York
City who uses anesthesia for these procedures?

I had a PVP done by Dr. Alexis E. Te in New York City in 2003. I was
given spinal anesthesia. I may have been given a sedative also, I
don't remember, but it was very easy and painless and I was awake most
of the time. I was kept overnight in the hospital because of my age
(71 at that time). Pre-op tests included bladder tests where I was
catheterized, also a cystoscopy with a flexible cystoscope. Before the
cystoscopy I was given a topical anesthetic (possibly lidocaine) in
the tip of my penis. I may have gotten lidocaine just before the
catheterization also but couldn't see what the assistant was doing.
The pre-op tests were done weeks before the actual operation.

My PVP seems to be lasting OK. I would recommend Dr. Te very highly.
In my opinion, he's one of the best urologists in the country.

Your painful experiences were probably due to careless treatment and
the use of a rigid cystoscope.

Best of luck.

I have had a PVP almost two years ago. Unfortunately, I need a "minor"
redo about half a year later and it looks like I might need another.

Nevertheless, pain from the surgery both times was virtually
nonexistent. The catheterization was very irritating and annoying but
certainly not devastating. Most of that came from being tethered to the
urine bag. I ended up removing the Foley catheter myself and felt much
better then.

Just an addendum to my previous post:
After my PVP in 2003, I spent overnight in the hospital with a Foley
catheter and urine bag and constant fluid input to rinse my bladder
out. The next morning there was some irritation at the tip of my penis
that was alleviated by more lidocaine. The resident doctor removed the
Foley catheter with no pain and after I peed 300 ml of bloody urine
unassisted, I was allowed to leave (escorted of course but I felt
great and could navigate with no help).
