Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
It sounds to me like you're having problems with overactive bladder that is thinking you urinate frequently during the day and night. I would recommend that your doctor put you on a medication such as oxybutynin which is designed to help stop bladder spasms. This will help to stop the amount of times you have to get up to urinate. You should discuss this option with your urologist. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
