Discussions that mention pyridium

Urology board


Nothing to it - for a female it isn't so bad. Don't worry about it - they just insert a scope and look inside the bladder. You might have a little burning afterwords for a day or so. Now, for a guy it is a bigger problem with burning. You only have a few inches of urethra so not much to it. It only takes a few minutes and the worry is lots worse than the procedure. Just relax - it sounds much worse than it is. My wife also had a few and she didn't have any burning afterwords, but let them give you Pyridium just in case. I guess the real question is - why are they doing the procedure?
