I have fought this for severaly years. I HATE to get up in the night. Post prostatectomy, I would wait and hold it until it hurt, and I found that I could last longer and longer. I currently do not get up, unless I get woken up by a train or my wife's snoring.
I do believe based on my own experience that we can control this by conditioning, maybe in some way like we kegeled to regain control of our sphincter.
