I too still get up during the night and some nights are worse then others and it appears that we wound up down pretty much the same path. First surgery then salvage radiation. I usally get up at least once and sometimes two and maybe three. But if I have a couple of beers then I can really keep getting up. The funny part is Sunday nights and that is the one where we have popcorn many times and then I can sleep a lot of the times through the night. In my case I would say I was doing well then the salvage radiation and it seems to have gotton a little worse since completion of those treatments. I don't know if that weaken things up a little more but I will have to check at my next appointment.
