Why do i have to pee so much at night?

Postby amadeo40 » Fri Jan 20, 2012 4:21 am

This started a month or two ago. I go to bed but i have to wake up before usually 3-4 time before i fall asleep to peer. it is usually just a weak stream that i wouldn't even have to do during the day. Im not drinking anything 3 hours before i sleep. My dad said it has to do with my surgery i had a spinal fusion 3 months ago and have been recovering. could that be true. Im 18 and was in great shape before surgery. Could it be prostate cancer or something?

Its very likely that your dad is correct. The spinal fusion (I'm sorry for your injury) creates lots of inflammation in the area. The Low Back (Lumbar - Sacrum) part of your spinal cord controls the nerves of your bladder, bowels, and other lower organ functions. Pressure on the spinal cord can will result in a less than optimal nerve control over the muscles that control your bladder. As your body heals, it is very likely that you will see a reduction or the symptoms will resolve. I would suggest taking an Omega - 3 as a dietary supplement to help reduce the level of inflammation in your body. Again this goes without know what caused the initial injury and result of the surgery.

I think it's related to your room's temperature. Is your room cold?
I've had the same problem... But, when I adjusted the temperature, everything worked fine.

Maybe it was due to your surgery you had. It probably messed with your bladder some.
