Night Voids

With this SPC, I am finally getting some good sleep at night. I fill up my night bag ~ 2 liters, my day leg bag I empty 3-4 times/day never full unless I am just getting up from a nap. I still do not know what causes this increase kidney function at night. It has got to be mental, no department (neph, uro, endo) can find any problem. This began about the same time as the PC was found. The aggressive/progressiveness of the PC means that it was going on for several years before being discovered, so the night voids started about one year before PC diagnosis and got pretty bad about 6 months before PC diagnosis. Sure wish there were some answers to this problem. Still does not seem to be a connection to PC.
With respect to a previous post by another member of this blog, I am also having some good results using Imodium to control my UTT's. Some times when I get it right (seems to change) I do not need to be near a bathroom. After the SPC procedure, the doc recommended using stool softner, bad idea. Had to clean up a few times before I got back on Imodium.
I am still trying to accept where my body is with respect to where my mind wants it to be. I do have good things to be thankful for, I just seem to dwell on the bad stuff, not good. Like now I can get a good nights sleep!
