Hi, looking at the amounts of urine passed I noticed that some were very small, I presume these were leaks and not actually visits to the bathroom. I have measured my amounts of urine passed but not the amounts taken in. The amounts passed vary between 100 ml to about
400 ml and at the upper limit I am bursting to go for a pee. I do not usually drink after about
8 to 9pm. My specialist nurse said that these were good averages for a normal bladder. I do still need to go during the night but it is getting later and later as time goes by, now at approx 6 to 6.30 am. I did not ever go to the bathroom in the night prior to surgery. All the best from England.
