I just got back from an appt with my doctor for an annual followup for bladder cancer (I'm eight years cancer free). He quoted a rate of only 20 percent of neo bladder patients having nighttime incontinence problems. Eighty percent make it thru the night? I void before going to bed and wake midway to void again, but still have problems. I was was nearly continent three years ago, but took a marked change for the worse. This coincided with a colonoscopy. Maybe the doctor had fun while I was out and re-arranged things.
Can anyone corroborate the statistic?
