Cystoscopy (cont.)

After the Procedure

Most people undergoing cystoscopy will be able to go home the same day as the procedure. Recovery depends on the type of anesthesia. If only local anesthetic is used, you can go home immediately. For other people, a recovery period of 1-4 hours is necessary. During this observation period, the anesthetic will wear off, and you will need to be able to urinate prior to leaving.
