Rezum worked - but still having to get up at night

Posted , 9 users are following.

Anyone else have issues with Nocturia after a successful prostate procedure? I thought they were related, but for me it didn't really change anything, I just pee faster now at night when I go up twice to go. I have 0 PVR.

    The end of May will be two years since my Rezum procedure. The last time I had my PVR measured, it was 0. I'd rate my procedure as successful.

    I get up at least twice a night and need to urinate before I go back to sleep. In my case, though, I think I'm just a poor sleeper because the volume is very low, probably less than 25 ml each time.

      William,

      Getting up only twice per night is GREAT!!. I get up, on the average, every 1 1/2 hours and it takes 5-10 minutes to partially clear my bladder before I can get to sleep again. My PVR is about 200ml, so 0 is beyond great. A small amount of melatonin helps as does Tylenol PM.

      Tim, I have to amend my post; my 25 ml estimate was way off. I measured my nighttime output the past few nights. Each time is in the range of 100 to 150 ml. During the day, I get the signal to go at about 175 ml.

      I'd say that my overall capacity is less than yours, but that my nighttime schedule is similar to what I experience during the day.

    Hey Tim

    If you were doing it before you had the Rezum. It may just be a habit. You will just have to work on it. There are a lot of men that have the same problem. 2 times is not that bad. Do you have any problem going back to sleep. Just watch what you drink at night that may help

    Good Luck...........Ken

    I had surgery the end of October 2017 and it took several months of gradual healing. Now I feel very comfortable, do not have these urges anymore, can hold it much better and control myself. I can sleep 6 or more hours without having to get up, which is a true blessing. As Ken always says...every man is different and heals differently. Best of luck to you!

    I had Rezum 3 years ago. Most nights I get up once, at most twice, which is a big improvement from what before the procedure. 250-400 is definitely in the zone where you shouldn't hold it anymore, especially on the high end. it seems that your body just expels a lot of liquid at night and all you can do is limit fluid/caffeine before bed, ect. There are some threads (in Rezum - have you had this done) where folks say that wearing compression socks during the day helps force the liquid before bed and cuts down on the middle of the night bathroom trips, You might want to search for those as some have said they got a lot of relief.
