Brief Answer:
Needs to investigate .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query and gone through our previous thread of discussion that we had few months back regarding your problem of repeated UTI .

The problem of secondary Enuresis that you have twice in last month could be due to
what is called as Over Active Bladder (OAB)
1) Do you take any alcohol beverage or Coffee before going to bed ?
2) Do you drink more water after evening ?
3) How is your urine flow now?
4) Are you able to hold on urination if required due to lack of availability of toilet ?

The occasional incidence of Enuresis has no significance and it is very difficult to find the cause for the same or pinpoint the diagnosis .

Following general measures may help you to get this issue resolved .
1) Avoid drinking coffee and water after afternoon .
2) Avoid taking alcohol before going to bed .
3) Make a routine habit to empty your bladder before going to sleep .
4) Make a habit to wake up once in night and empty your bladder .

Take Darifenacin once daily .This will help to relax the bladder and thereby prevent unvoluntary contractions of bladder during sleep .

If problem persistent even after following this routine for 2 months consult qualified Urologist for evaluation to establish the diagnosis and further treatment .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.
Dr.Patil.

Sir,
I do not take coffee or alcohol before going to bed
I try to empty my bladder before going to bed.
Sometimes I take 750ml to 800 ml water after dinner.
After dinner I go to bed atleast after two hours.
Urgency of urination reduced gradually after cystoscopy.
Urine flow is fair enough
I can hold urine if I do not find a toilet nearby when I am conscious.
I used to take 4-5 litres of water every day.
These informations may help you to find the problem.
Thanks,
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Brief Answer:
Reduce water intake after evening .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up and feedback.

Secondary Enuresis that you have is occasional hence has no significance.

Get your blood test to detect serum ADH (Anti Diuretic Hormone ) done .
This hormone reduces production of urine by Kidneys in the night if the level of this hormone is low results in to increased urine production in night and may cause Enuresis.

Reduce your water intake after evening .Have a trial of Darifenacin once daily for a month and observe for any improvement .

Thanks and Regards.
Dr.Patil.
