  • Cystoscope

    Hi. I will be getting a cystoscopy done next month. Is it normally done through the penis or the Supra pubic catheter?
    thanks

    I have a supra pubic catheter, and the cystoscopies I have had have been through the urethra, not the supra pubic stoma.

      Mine were done through the stoma because my urethra has a stricture.

        It depends on your situation. They can be done either way.

            They will try through the urethra. Sometimes it has been closed or there is narrowing. Then they will go through SP.
