My urologist doesn't like it,, says there is too much chance of backing it up into the kidneys,,, but admits that if it's that common for me, then my bladder must be big enough to handle it.
He still tells me to drink less at night. I guess that is why I pay him,,, to get a knowledgable opinion,,,, so ,,,, sometimes I try to do what he says,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sometimes!!!!

the kidneys is one thing...but if you stretch out your bladder too much, there's a greater risk of getting UTIs. I was told once the bladder stretches out, the shrivels and folds can be containers for bacteria. Rule of thumb is 500~600 (depending on your size..i guess).
So,,,size does matter, after all...
