What can I do about frequent nighttime urination after surgery??

I had my prostate removed in January. I’m healing very well except that I need to get up frequently during the night to urinate. Sometimes it is three or four times a night, which is worse than before the surgery. I try not to drink anything for a few hours before going to sleep, but still often need to go anyway. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and thoughts on improving the situation.

    Hi @JoBu, hopefully we’ll hear responses from others, but in the meantime wanted to share some articles on this. It mentions not drinking too much liquid before bed, which you’re already doing: https://prostatecancer.net/living/urinary-control-after-surgery/. This video really digs into a lot of other triggers for your bladder: https://prostatecancer.net/video/tip-trick-bladder-irritants/. I’m glad things are going well otherwise, and I hope this will follow suite. – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team
