Hi Mike, How many cc's are you urinating during the day and how often? Do you stop drinking two hours before bedtime? Another method that works for most is to set the alarm for every two hours and void before you leak, then every week increase by 1/2 hour until you can go four hours. Practice starting and stopping your flow during the day this will help strenghten the sphincter muscles which hold the urin in your bladder. Where did you have your surgery done and how long was your operation? Tim RC 11/01/05

The procedure of the neobladder took 8 hours and was performed by Dr. Graeham Steele. Having trouble with my right leg since the epindermal was administered ,pins and needles all the time ,Trying to walk it off. thanks for your concern and advice Mike52

Urinating @ Night While Sleeping

Hi Mike, Go to a medical supply store and buy a urine measuring bowl that fits in your toilet so you know haow much you are urinating. When your neobladder was new it could only hold about 100-150 cc's you will need to get that up to 500 but not more than that, there are problems with a neobladder that is too large it can be very hard to get empty. The closer to 500 cc's you get the better the night time control will be. I found that if I used a Depends and a baby crib matterres pad with a towel over it over my sheets I was the only thing getting wet so it was pretty easy to get up and wash up and change the Depends and get back to sleep. you can go to www.depends.com and print coupons. any other questions please ask.

Hi-I came on here looking for information on the Neobladder and my husband had surgery done by Dr. Steele, and we couldn't be happier with is bedside manner, and true compassion. I feel if you are having these problems you need to talk with Dr. Steele, and we are in the very beginning stages of this neobladder.  My husband just got home this past Monday and I know we have a long road ahead of us, and he will have alot of ups and downs, but feel so fortunate that Dr. Steele was our surgeon, because he cares.  Please call and ask that you talk to him directly and let him know what you are experiencing.  I think he would want to know what you are going through and help you with some of the problems you are having.  I have realized through this journey that I have become my husbands "advocate" and if it wasn't for me he wouldn't be where he is right now.  We had some serious things happen before the neobladder, but we were grateful for Dr. Steele.  Good Luck and I hope my husband's recovery will be good but it was better than what would have happened due to his type of cancer.  Good Luck, and CALL, don't be afraid...
