count yourself lucky you had an anaesthetic. I had a camera rammed up a place you don't want, in to my bladder. no anaesthetic. it felt like id been impaled on a sword. They said it wouldnt hurt. they did seem concerned that i may pass out. concern of a sort.Australian and NZ companies usually have very flat hierarchies. It's considered poor form to think yourself better than someone else. I've known a CEO to take the time to know thousands of employees by name and ask to be introduced immediately they don't know someone. You treat people as you'd like to be treated. Everyone's opinion is welcome and judged on merit. I found the same when living and working in Netherlands. A urologist was late for my appointment. After 30 mins I told the nurse I couldn't wait as I was on an hourly contract and it was costing me. A few days later I received a signed letter (written in English) from the urologist apologising for any inconvenience he'd caused me along with his direct number to make a new appointment. The Dutch can be brutally honest too. About to have a camera in my bladder under local anasthetic I asked the nurse if it would hurt much. "Oh yes, of course, it's very painful" she replied, "but you can squeeze my hand if you like".
however, if anyone needs a uroscopy, just grit your teeth and do it. it could save your life. it was over in seconds. maybe you can get an anaesthetic if you ask.
