On April 5th I had a bipolar TURP and have updated my condition several times here. My frequency/urgency symptoms are improved and my flow is now a bit stronger. Progress is slow, but I am improving, and happy that I did the procedure.
However, one of my issues before the operation was the nocturia - I was getting up 6-7 times per night and it was taking at least 20 and often 30 minutes to clear enough from my bladder so that I was able to get back to sleep. Now, I am able to calm my bladder in 10-15min, and get back to sleep faster. However, I am still getting up 6-7 times per night, and I am only able to sleep about 1.5 hours at stretch before I wake up and head to the bathroom again. I am also experiencing some serious insomnia in the middle of the night - about 3-4am. I just can't seem to get back to sleep right away. Several times this past week I was awake for two hours at a time before dozing off. I am now thinking that this is no longer a retention/prostate issue but is now a bad habit - a form of insomnia. Some here have improved their nocturia issues after various treatments, including TURP and some are now getting up just once per night.
So, my question is, has anyone else had ANY form of treatment, and found that they are still getting up multiple times per night? Did this issue eventually resolve and if so, how long did it take?
