went to 2nd urologist with my labs from 2 years. ( i am post tx for anal c. 15 months) hemoglobin and RBC keep showing up in urinalysis.. so he said that I do need a cystoscope just to be safe. probably nothing because i have no UTI or kidney infection symptoms and CT states bladder is ok. supposedly it is an easy test with small flexible camera to look and see if anything abnormal in bladder. goes thru urethra. smaller than a cathetre. any thoughts??

I just had the cysto. and he said all is Ok. could see radiation damage. will do one in a year to keep checking. it hurt a little and was uncomfortable for a day . thanks for your info. and glad that you had your polyp removed and it is ok.

I'm glad to hear that your scope went okay and there were no problems seen. I really think radiation does a real number on our urinary tract, as well as everything else down there. I hope you have recovered from the procedure and that your problems will ease.
