He it's me again. Now that my stone is taken of I would like to take care of another problem. I have to pee every 2 or 3 hours, only at night. I just want to be able to get a good night sleep. I talked to the urologist and he said I was retaining fluid and when I lay down it went back to my bladder making me pee. He told me to elevate my legs before bed. That did not work. He gave me enablex (for over active bladder) Since the ditropan wasn't helping either. I was taking it with no releif. I read about it and it says not to take it with Bentyl. I will NOT give up my Bentyl. I have worked at my job for 23 years and very busy all day not much time for potty breaks. Does any one have any suggestions for me??? I just want to have a good nights sleep.
Thanks again, Kay

Hey Kay!!! I have the same problem at night. Get up about every 2 hrs. And its a pain the you know what. Anyway...have you been checked for having protein in your urine? Getting up excessivly at night is a symptom of protein.

The only thing I can think of is limit your liquids after dinner. I tried this and it didnt help but maybe it will for you! So far, I haven't found anything to help. I can take a ambien and flexeril and still get up just as many times.

Welcome Kay... I will tell you I have the same problem. When I have stones even after they are taken out I will pee alot more at night. Sometimes it takes awhile for all the systems to get back into a regular sinc. But then Amy is so right it is a sign of protein in the urine. I would call your doctors nurse to ask this question.
