Hi there, I have been at this site before several times about this subject. And still things are no better although they do sometimes improve for a short time.
Anyway to cut a long story short, I usually drink about 1500ml each day. So far at 4.30pm, I'm up to 1 litre. 1250 ml with a drink at dinner time and 1500ml by the time I've had a drink in the evening.
My urination is minimal during the day with much bigger voids in the early hours.
Take today for example. 3.10am I had a 600ml void then a 400ml void at 9am. But since 9am I've hardly peed at all. 100ml at 1pm and 50ml at 4.15pm!
I've seen a Urologist, The Doctor and also the bladder nurse about 3 times and they all say that following various scans, flow and volume tests everything is normal.
Now this all started A) When I had an accident at home because I'd just had an hip replacement and couldn't get to the bathroom on time. From the day onwards (May 2nd) my urination changed so that my daytime urination was minimal.
And B) it was made even worse when I had a terrifying urgency episode in town that was extremely painful and overwhelming. It was one of the most scary moments ever. Didn't wet myself, it was a miracle. Think it impacted on me subconsciously though and together with the impact of the accident at home, something has interupted, stopped, slowed down my urination so I avoid another accident or urgency episode.
I notice I get decent voids after I've been relaxed and asleep in bed for a while. But I think that's the problem, I'm so tense and anxious about it during the day that possibly I am involuntarily tightening up my sphincter and reducing my flow.
Scared of: A) Damaging my bladder with too much urine because of low voids. B) Scared of "Excess" urine triggering another urgency episode the same as happened in town that day.
C) Scared of urination stopping completely when I have minimal voids, like now. Going on for 5pm and only voided 150ml so far!
I will add that whilst I am worried about all this, I am not in pain anywhere, no sickness or anything, don't feel ill. No swelling, nothing like that.
All I want is my normal urination back. Anyone else having a similar experience?
