    Good idea Suze.

    Laz, of course you feel nervous. It’s your first time. Seems natural to me. We will all be thinking of you.

    I hope that this will help you, Linda. And they should try to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you, seems to me.

    I agree--anyone would have concerns.

    I am in agreement with Sunshine and Agate. This being your first time, it is only natural to be apprehensive. I would be. Plus I don't like being examined anyway.

    When you got Botox for incontinence did your doc give you antibiotics before and after the procedure?

    Any problem with me driving the 20 minutes to and from the place?

    Did you take a Valium 5mg before procedure?

    Anything else Ishould know?
    I had a 200mg injection...actually there were many injections. Much of it was extremely painful. However, I told her to keep going. Some of the procedure did not hurt at all.

    I did not take the small Valium which might have relaxed the muscles. My husband has been sick and I wanted to be able to drive myself home. Next time maybe I will take the Valium. They did use a numbing substance....wonder if they could use more

    Anyway, I feel ok now. Since she was over an hour late the whole thing took up 3 hours instead of 1hour. I am exhausted but if this works, my life will be much, much better.

    Thanks for all the encouraging posts.

    Rest now. Have been thinking about you.

    Then, when you recover, maybe let them know how awful it was?

    I am glad it is over. Next time you will know to ask for extra numbing.

    I'll ask for Cat's doctor's method.

    Glad you are home, Linda.

    That sounds painful! I like my method better! �� in fact, it's SO much fun, I'm going again on March 5 to have it again.

    But I'm a little confused...you're sound like they were external?? The shots I get are inside the bladder, where he also removes any bladder stones or sediment accumulated....

    Cat, I don't know if it would be anything similar or not, but many years ago I had to have a 4 quadrant biopsy. They told me it would not hurt. Believe me it did. I was unable to get up off the table unaided. The nurses helped me into the waiting room where my husband was. I got over it quickly, but it did hurt really bad. They did not give me anything to numb me or relax me.

    Sorry if I was unclear. I too got shots inside the bladder. If I had taken the small Valium my muscles would have been relaxed. My goal was being able to get to the facility and back by myself.

    Things are good today. NO bleeding or burning. If it works I will do it again.
