Cystoscopy usually causes minor loss of inner skin along with circumferential stretching of the urethra. This can cause minor inflammation in the urethra which could cause the bladder spasms.Most of the times it settles within few days. But some individuals can have symptoms for long.There is no specific reason for that.
You can take anticholinergic drugs like vesicare or detrusitol to decrease the spasms temporarily. I assume an urine test has been done before during one of these episodes. If not done then it has to be done.After all it is insertion of a foreign body which always carry the risk of an infection.
If you have any questions please let me know.
Sorry to respond so late.Spasms in the bladder and urethra are felt at the tip of the penis due to the similar nerve supply. So the problem doesn't need to be at the tip of the penis. Its like the bladder stone causing pain at the tip of the penis.It is called referred pain.
My assumption is that you are getting a bout of urethritis after each scopy. Things you can do about it is to take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs during the acute phase. Once it reduces you can try to ignore it.
I guess after the next scopy the schedule is going to change.It would be either 6 monthly or once a year there after.
