Download and print as a PDF


As you are aware you have undergone a procedure called a flexible cystoscopy today.

When you go home, you must drink plenty of fluid for the next 24-48 hours to flush your system through. When you pass urine over the next three to four days you may find that it stings and may be slightly bloodstained. If you continue to drink plenty of fluid, this discomfort and bleeding should clear rapidly.

You will have been:

  • Booked for a flexible cystoscopy in ‘x’ amount of months.
  • Booked to come in for an operation (date would have been advised).
  • Booked for further investigations in x-ray.
  • Discharged.

If you are booked for a procedure or for further cystoscopy the admissions department at the Princess Royal Hospital will be in touch about your admission date.

If they have not contacted you within three weeks you can call them on: 01444 441881 extension 8612.

If the x-ray department has not been in touch about your x-ray investigation within three weeks, then contact the hospital where you had the initial procedure for more information.

If you become unwell or have a temperature in the next few days or bleeding does not stop you should contact your own general practitioner (GP) as you may have a urine infection and need some antibiotics.

If you have any other problems please see your GP.

If you have a new show of blood in your urine at any time please contact your GP as soon as possible.
