Urine Retention: Tight Pelvic Floor Muscles & Stretches

I am curious about "most of my urine production occurs during sleep at night, which has to be fixed as well" I have wondered why my urine production is so high at night? Please elaborate, I do have BPH.

Do you mean you are needing to get up at night to pee more often? Urine production is a 24/7 thing in the body and at night you are processing what you drank earlier. I stop drinking fluid at 1800 but still get up x3 to pee but I drink a ton of water daily and always have. I have no urinary issues and pee like a race horse. Did you get your PSA checked?

I was amazed at the volume of urine I produced at night once I begin recording catheterizing volume. It occurs in the first 2-4 hours when I'm in deep sleep, even if I eliminated drinking water after dinner. My urologist said an increase was normal as we age (that's one reason we pee more often at night), but I was unusually high and may want to see a nephrologist (kidney doc). That's where we left it, and since I don't have BPH, and no surgery was recommended at this point, I assumed this was a big factor simply because a blockage of any kind combined with high volume during deep sleep eventually can lead to a distended bladder, my problem. I'm hoping to learn more in the next few months and will update.
