Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
I had radical prosemerty surgery five or six years ago. Had thirty five sessions of radiation two years ago for rising PSA (about 1.14)
In past three months must wake upevery hour or hour and half for frequent and urgent urination (my doctor-urologist) said this was because of radiation.
Also I have to disconnected once or twice from dialysis for this problem.
These symptoms occur even when I drink nothing at night or for breakfast.
Symptoms do not respond to 4mg Detrol LA for last three weeks.
How can I get relief and be able to sleep through the night?
Any suggestions? any blog I could join.
As a urologist, you need two things for sure: cystoscopy to rule out a bladder neck contracture and also a bladder test called urodynamics that can determine if this is due to bladder spasms or not. Bladder spasms can be treated with medications such as detrol LA. If you do have a bladder neck contracture causing this, this requires surgical treatment.
