Hey Kaeseska, I don't know about the 1st question, but I can relate to #2 brother. I am a "Pissasarus Rex!" Thats what my kids call me! At least every hour at night and maybe 2 or 3 times an hour during the day. My most recent uroligist says its because I drink so much water, I do!! I never do or go anywhere without water. Blame it on the Florida heat, I duno, maybe a sympom of some other afliction. I had a radical so it may not be the same post treatment condition as you, but my surgin at Johms Hopkins told me that after I had surgury, I may develope scar tissue and if I did I should have my urethra stretched out. (an easy prosedure) But my urologist in Fla. talked me out of it saying "why take a chance of trying to fix it and maybe causing more incontenance?" I listened to him. Now I wonder? I am getting a new uro on the 13th and I'm going to ask him. To be truthful, I haven't had one in 1 1/2 years! Shame on me! but have been getting PSAs checked by my primary Dr. I don't know if this will help you but you are not the only "Pissasarus Rex." I was at a meeting of "Us Too" a P.C. support group, on Friday night and was by far the youngest out of about 30 guys there, I was the 1st to get up and go to the restroom!
Good Luck, keep in touch!!
