Can't make it through the night without going to the bathroom

I used to be able to hold it now I'm up one or two times a night passing urine and I don't think I'm drinking any more than I did before hopefully this will clear up with time.


Also I've had some stomach cramp issues the last few days don't know if it's because of the stomach bug going around or if it's just part of the process had some diarrhea too.


Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?

I am sorry you are having all this going on. I have not experienced this, but wonder if you called your surgeon's office?

You don't want an UTInfection.

Let us know what you learn. Don't just suffer, get this checked out.

Sending you HEALING hugs,

I can no longer hold it like I used to. I get up at least once in the night. I do not have an infection. I think it will just be this way for me from now on. Not sure why.

I get up frequently too but I also drink lots of water.

I drink quite a bit of water and I have to gt up a couple of times at night (and I promptly drink more water.....go figure).  In my case, there's no infection.  I just think it's old-fartedness starting to rear its ugly head.

Hi Sal,

I had that too, when I was home from hospital. For a while I was urinating more often than usual. I don't remember how long that lasted but it settled down after a while. Maybe a couple of weeks.

I get up once a night too. But I do drink a lot of water during the day.

after 6pm. Only a sip of water with evening meds. If you need someone to talk with in the middle of the night, give me a call. I'll probably be up taking a leak.

Don't worry, I got the same problem for a few months and it went back to normal afterward!

After a certain age you may even get up twice a night.  lol

I drink at least a gallon of water (1 cup of coffee included) per day.  I've been doing this for a while now and have learned to tone it back after 6:00 pm.  If I don't I'll be up 3-4 times per night.
