Glad to hear things are going well.
The time really varies a lot from person to person, and how many fluids you’re taking in. Right after my surgery I was going about every hour or two if I held it longer than comfortable, which my surgeon encouraged me to do for a while. Now I go all night without going, and it’s never a problem. If I had to give an average during the day, I’d probably say I go every five hours or so, unless I drink a lot or eat a big meal.
It does get better with time. Our bladder has to heal, and it can take several weeks or even months for things to return to normal.
How often are you going?
