My 93 year old Dad has night time urine incontinence, he is fine during the day. Thru a cat scan doctors found he has bone mets in the pelvis area or what they detected could be caused by broken bones. Doctors lean more towards bone mets but he is too frail to under go further testing. He has also been diagnosed with CHF. I'm thinking maybe the CHF is causing the nighttime urine incontinence? Any one have any thoughts or experience with their parents with this situation.

It is a difficult situation. It's also very hard to get someone that age to keep the face mask on. But it can be done and there are new products. You would prepare to go to the Sleep center 1-2 nights with your loved one. We did this with my father-in-law, got everything at home and he'd throw it off during the night. When someone wakes themselves up with apnea during the night, it sets of a signal to go to the bathroom, legitimate or not. Blessings to you. In the struggle with you...

I was reading about a connection with sleep apnea and nighttime urine incontinence. My father does have apnea and I'm guessing sleep apnea is the same thing? I'm wondering if anyone has a parent with both conditions and if CPAP worked for that.

He's not on diuretics. So that's not it. It's baffling when I think about it as to why only the night.

I'm going to guess that with CHF they are giving him diuretics like furosemide (Lasix) or metolazone that make holding urine darn near impossible. Get him a small urinal to keep by his bed, if that helps.
