Cystoscopy (cont.)

Next Steps

You need to rest for 24 hours after the administration of anything but a local anesthetic. No driving or any other complex or dangerous tasks should be performed. Your doctor will instruct you on any physical limitations, including sexual activity. Even though the surgery is performed internally, there still may be a risk of bleeding with exertion. Take all antibiotics as prescribed.
