Urologist 's  Response
As you suggested your bladder capacity has increased. normally the capacity is approximately 500 cc and it has nearly doubled. Cause can be because of obstruction to your urine flow for prolonged period. For that you need to check for symptoms like straining while passing urine, poor stream or intermittency. Also bladder capacity increases in diabetics. Third possibility is if there is any abnormality in the nerve supply to he bladder that can also cause large bladder. Lastly some people are compulsive water drinkers and due to excessive consumption they may have large bladder. you need to visit a urologist.
