Some times i have to wake up every 1-2 hours too. But if i   ride an horse( standing up on stirrups never sitting down on saddle) for about 30 minutes trotting an galopping after i sleep also for 4-6 hours and during day  a can stay also 7-8 hours without needing toilet!!!!!

there is on web some urologist who knows the biomecanicals of riding movements and can tell me what happens? is a good exercise for  prostate or for bladder or for muscles or for back nerves???Thanks

    Studies have shown certain kinds of exercise can be beneficial for prostate health. Personally, I have less prostate symptons while I'm active than during periods of inactivity. In fact, I've found that if I have trouble urinating, walking around for 10-15 minutes can sometimes solve the problem. Maybe we're on the wrong track heading to the doctor's office when we should be heading to the riding stable!

      Probably should add that at least one form of exercise could have the opposite effect . That would be riding a bicycle with a narrow seat. These types of seats can actually make things worse for the prostate and split seats are often recommended. Standing up on the pedals I suppose would be another solution, such as you do on the stirrups. That way no pressure on the prostate.

      That is exactly right jimjames.  On a fluke, I discovered that if I simply walk to the kitchen and back (80 feet away) instead of to the bathroom (8 feet away), I'm able to void much more.  To Vandalo, not sure if you have any mobility / ambulatory issues.  If you don't, try walking.  And it doesn't have to be great distances.  If you can work your way up to 10,000 steps, you may notice a distinct cessation of some of your sypmtoms at least.

    If you fill a baloon with water and hold it up above the sink it drains quickly.  If you let it sit in the sink on it's opening it drains slowly if at all.  As we age our internal organs tend to sag downward and press on whatever is below them.  When we exercise we bring muscle tone back into it's role of holding the organs up. I find that almost any exercise is helpful with bladder draining.
