Over 50`s , How Knackered Are You ?

Weird thing for me, for years I was getting up for a wee sometimes two or three times a night, but over the last few weeks not at all.

No idea why this should be, except that I've lost weight.

Also (don't know if this applies equally to blokes) trying to hold on a bit longer - without risk of accident - can actually retrain the bladder to stop telling you to wee so frequently!
Ignoring the need for a pee is also a good way to give yourself a urinary tract infection. The best thing you can do is when you feel the urge, give in to it (try and make it to a loo first though). Lying in bed for an hour trying to ignore the urgent knocking on your bladder door isn't exactly going to ensure a restful sleep anyway, is it?

@StBob072 , yes, the lack of frequency is down to the weight loss and sorry, belly fat is always the last to go!

I'm fighting fit!

Fighting for breath and fit to drop.
A tad overweight (never trust a skinny cook)
Knackered right knee after a failed replacement and a two stage revision.
Gout, held off by daily Alipurinol (sp)
Iffy blood pressure, but improving. Ramipril.
Omeprazole for hernia
Droopy dick syndrome - Viagra (works wonders)

Apart from that I'm good!

You are right as usual. But that wasn't really what I meant (as usual!). I don't feel any need to wee in the night any more, but find myself wanting to wee throughout the day when I don't really need to - apparently this is common to a lot of people and it's mainly psychological.

Yep. What's your caffeine intake like, particularly coffee?



(I'm wrong a lot more often than I'm right!)
 
F.F.S. . . . !!

Wish I'd discovered this thread earlier ;) .

Approaching 70 - and, trying to view 70 as the new 40 . . . but as I can't remember that far back, I'm not convinced :) .

Best wishes, commiserations, and sympathy - as appropriate - to all posters.
 
Ok I will play

Nebilet
Local statin
Asprin
Siofor

Currently on the no booze, eat sensible and walk a lot diet.

I need to lose 10 kilos minimum but who am I kidding 20 would be better.
HBP caused by overweight and women.
I am currently in the throes of getting rid of both.

Walked 10 km yesterday and 13 today.

Tomorrow I will cycle 5 km due to work restrictions.


Edited - eyesight is +2.6
Right ankle semi-fucked due to a bad twist in a snow drift. It was the last time I went ball deep
 
Jesus , I`ve only ever had a finger inserted , certainly wont be going to your doc.
I want a little finger probing … not a *******, and it is nice to walk back to the car instead of waddling. Also my local surgery has taken on a 6' 6" Zimbabwean Doctor with hands like a bunch of bananas, nice guy but an examination too far.
 
65 in January. Lower back, left knee, neck, all been a problem since mid 50's. Hearing crap in left ear, not great in right. Tinnitus is a bastard. CBD oil Cannabis Oil (legal here) has helped the joints no end!

Up for a piss once a night, around 4am after stupidly canning it for an hour-Why do I do that?

Mid 50's also brought ED Erectile Dysfunction. Cialis (ED med) fixed that, but a PE Pulmonary Embolism followed by other heart issues meant Xeralto and Finistrade (PE meds).

Guess what? Xeralto and Finistrade-with Cialis, equals ED (again).

Sigh.
Does this come with a translation sheet?
Looks straight forward to me. See above in red.
 
I'm older than time itself but still fairly healthy:-

Heart of gold
Nerves of steel
A knob of butter
Wooden bladder
Dicky ticker
Fekkin' horrible brown lumps all over my skin (doc insists they are harmless)
Peg leg, hook hand and eye patch, all standard for matelots of my generation.
 
75,no medication,deaf,one hip replaced,had eye surgery recently for macular hole,don't enjoy drinking too much nowadays,pissing too much.Playing golf tomorrow and Wednesday,0715 tee time.Counting my blessings really.
 
I posted this before, but worth repeating.
I am sitting in the waiting room waiting, as that's what you do in a waiting room, when out comes the doc and calls my name.

I look up and see this amazing vision of a woman, I mean fit as f*ck, short skirt big charlies, the complete package.
She wouldn't stick her finger up my arse though as we have a big hospital minutes down the road and all invasive procedures are done there apparently.

Upon a little research it turns out she was one of TV,s Gladiators and now has her own gig on telly and is quite famous.

Really good GP though and I was gutted when she left.
 
I'm lucky that I have no real health problems at 55, fitness is always a problem, recently had a health scare that turned out to be nothing after a minor procedure, (always best to get it checked out) getting back into my five mile weekly run has been hard after just a couple of weeks break from it, I was running up the hill like a little old fella, well I am a little old fella I spose, next two days of stiff sore leg muscles, hobbling around like they are made of wood. Can't expect the same recovery rate of years gone by, as those years have gone by. Wondering now how long I'll be able to keep it up. May have to take up walking instead, time to get a dog?

My Mum takes most of those.

She's 88....

:razz:
I count myself lucky to still be here, with the life I led as a youngster and some.of the stunts I pulled, I didn't think I'd make it to 30, so paying the price now I suppose.
 
53 and apart from a slight problem with my right knee (remnants of an injury 10 years ago), I'm fit as a fiddle. Low BP, low heart rate, not at risk of diabetes. I had an echocardiogram 6 months ago as a guinea pig for the trainee physiologists so I know my heart is tickety-boo. I develop vitamin D deficiency every winter, the supplements are the only thing close to regular medication that I take.

Hopefully I haven't just jinxed myself...

Was prescribed Sildenafil when I became diabetic, turn up with a heart condition and now not prescribed. Now seeing as it has a use in cardiac treatment, I'd have thought that they'd up the dosage but no!
