I was diagnosed with PCa in early 2007, shortly after I presented with getting many times/night to void, full bladder, 200 cc plus. Not just dribbles. This had been getting worse over the past year and I was getting tired of loosing sleep. Worst case I would be up ten times in eight hours, voiding about 2 liters/night. Not so much during the day. Measurements indicate urine production rates about 35 to 50 cc/hr when awake, and 100 to 200 cc/hr when asleep. Even after PCa EBRT/IMRT (Sept/Oct 07) treatment the night voids continue. In April 2010 the urethra began to be very painful, on pain management with nausea control. Last week, my uro decided I'ed had enough and I had a Suprapubic catheter installed which bypasses the urethra but still have some leakage which hurts. I needed severe pain management after the cystoscope used to place the SPC, but the next day was able to quit the pain management program. Finally getting a good nights sleep, leaving the cath open to bed bag at night.
Has anyone else had night voids? I have no idea if they are associated with prostate cancer as they do not seem to be. No other med depts have any answers (uro, neph, endo). I suspect it is in my head.
