Ben’s story

I enjoy my life again and feel 20 years younger

Ben, 54, Carpenter

For several years, I have been bothered by my constant need to urinate. I was going about 10 times during the day and 3 or 4 times at night. It really bothered me and was affecting my professional life. I was very tired during the day, my energy level was very low, and I often had difficulty concentrating. I felt terrible and was sometimes too tired to go to work.

Eventually, I went to see my healthcare professional who referred me to a specialist. It took some time to get my treatment right and the first medicine I tried didn’t help at all. I underwent some additional tests and needed to fill in a ‘bladder diary’ , noting my drinking and urination habits. Based on these results, I received a new treatment which stopped my excessive urination in the day but had little effect at night.

The healthcare professional was very supportive and assured me he could treat that too. I received an additional treatment which changed my life completely! I enjoy my life again and feel 20 years younger! Nowadays, I only wake up at night to urinate very occasionally, and if I do it’s only once. Usually this happens after a night out with my friends at the dance club.
