Customer Question

I had successful radiation treatment for Prostate Cancer but dating back several years, I have to get up 6 or 7 times at night to urinate.

This can be because there is stricture or other blockage and the bladder never empties fully
have you seen your urologist and had a scope?

Dr. Thomas, thank you for your advice. Frank

I have not really given it yet
But you should have a scope if not done.
Your bladder could be filling, only emptying partially then over flowing at night.
If this is the case, fixing the emptying problem will fix the night urination problem.
good luck
