Hydrodistention is a process which the doctor will perform while doing cystoscopy. Hydrodistention means that that doctor will fill in your bladder with water and let it stretch. This is done so that the doctor can have better look at your bladder. While undergoing hydrodistention you will be given a local anaesthesia so that you do not feel any pain or discomfort. There could be bleeding in some cases, the doctor will prescribe the right medication if that happens. Since you will be unconscious throughout the process, you will not feel the pain. However, you may feel some discomfort after the procedure is over. You may undergo a little difficulty and discomfort while urinating, but just a few times after the procedure is done, but the doctor will not give you anything for that. You should relax and let it pass.

You can also talk to your doctor about having a cystoscopy with undergoing hydrodistention. Then the procedure is much simpler and no anaesthetic is required as there is hardly any pain. If cystoscopy is done without hydrodistention, it can be done in the doctor's office with the use of lidocaine or novacaine.
