Tough to say without examining you personally.  In general, the flexible cystoscopy is a pretty safe and routine procedure and would be a reasonable next step.  

If you continue to have questions about the treatment plan, you may want to consider a second opinion - preferably at a major academic medical center.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
