I have no information why the cystoscopy is being performed. In some individuals the urethra is narrow Congenitally which will not allow the scope to pass in to the bladder. In some patients urethra is narrowed because of some pathology called stricture urethra. In either case if urethra needs to be cut then you will have catheter for at least 3 days. There is no need for prolonged admission.
