Going for a cystoscopy will the use of lidoderm patches thin my blood.
I use lidocaine in an ointment, but used to use the patches. Lidocaine only numbs the area it is placed on. It does not get into the bloodstream. I have had several procedures and surgeries over the years and have never had to stop using lidocaine. You can continue to use the patches safely.
