almost 9 months after surgery, i have to get up once or twice, where i never did pre-surgery, it is aggervating, but in my case, don't want to worry about
wearing diaper/depends or wetting the bed.
don't dehydrate yourself, but helps to cut back on anything but a limited amount of water. caffinated beverages, bubbly soda, fruit juices, all keep the bladder very active and will make you want to pee more. I usually just sip on a glass of water during the evening
