Good plan, Patricia. I don't often feel thirsty, but we got ourselves used to drinking big mugs of herb tea or water at fixed times. It works.

Comment was by Mrs.B on March 6, 2021 at 2:01pm

I never wait to be thirsty. I have my fluids on my side table all day long, starting with water, then green/black tea, & then my 2 cups of coffee, & after supper, it's water again, or a dealcoholized wine/beer. 

Comment was by Idaho Spud on March 6, 2021 at 11:55am

I have to urinate often during the day, but not enough to bother me much.

Comment was by Idaho Spud on March 6, 2021 at 11:52am

That's good news Ian.

I'm almost never thirsty and if I let that be my guide, my urine is too dark, so I try to remember to drink enough and I am getting better at that.

The only time I get thirsty is before bedtime, so I try to drink enough during the day so I can reduce my water intake before bed.  However, I still have to urinate about 3 times during the night.  

I have a urinal that I use in bed so I don't have to get out of bed.  That works well because I usually have no trouble going right back to sleep.

I hardly drink any water (which I know I should), just so I don't have to pee all the time. Still, I'm always going. Luckily, I rarely have to get up at night. Happy to hear your kidney report turned out okay, Ian.

Comment was by Mrs.B on March 5, 2021 at 2:40pm

My frequency is during the night....most annoying when I already have a sleep deprivation issue. The if I have a colitis flare....it can be 30 times a day/night.

Comment was by Ian Mason on March 5, 2021 at 2:31pm

Yes, it's nice that there's nothing serious wrong. To be blunt: do others feel that they pee 3 times as much as they drink? Think more and more of 'where's the nearest/next toilet'? I admit to a generous tea and coffee consumption and am wondering if I should start to ration myself. The urgency is greatest during the morning/midday hours and tails off during the afternoon.

Comment was by Mrs.B on March 5, 2021 at 1:50pm

Great news, Ian!

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on March 5, 2021 at 10:33am

Well done Ian so pleased for you 

Comment was by Chris B on March 5, 2021 at 10:21am

Good news, Ian, congratulations!
