Patient : I had surgery, back in April, that required them to catheterize me while under anethesia. Every since then I have had a constant burning. I have been on several antibiotics and pain prescriptions. I have also been on OTC pain meds, such as AZO, etc, which helps if I keep it in my system. Does this warrent a Cystoscopy and if I do have one, am I able to refuse the post op catheter?
