    What could be causing a 58 year old man to suddenly wet the bed and not get to the bathroom on time?

    I had transureathal microwave therapy TUMT in January of this year. I also have lower back pain and an MRI showed a bulge between my L5 and S1. My urologist said that I was just sleeping too soundly but I wasn't sleeping soundly when I had a sudden urge and couldn't make it to the bathroom. The urologist gave me Enablex and this has stopped but I'm wondering what could be causing it. I seem to have traded Flomax for Enablex when I had TUMT so that I wouldn't have to take medication. Flomax makes me feel like I am about to pass out and Enablex dries out my mouth.

    I had a TURP, (similar to your TUMT) about two years ago and developed urge incontinence after it. My urologist said it happens 10-15% of the time and no one knows why. However, looks like you have additional issues with your spinal nerves. For me, Botox injections help with the urge incontinence.
