How often do you pee?

Sorry about the random tmi, but I figured this was as good a place as any to get replies from multiple people with varied habits, haha...

Anyway, I have bum kidneys, so I drink a LOT of water. My urologist had me do a 48-hour urine collection, though, and my urine output is dangerously low. He wants me to up my water intake even more, and redo the test in a few weeks...

My thing is, though, is that I'm afraid I'm never going to get off the toilet, haha...I already go quite often, it's just low volume amounts. So, do you go frequently with small amounts or what?

Yes, I know it's gross, haha...I'm just trying to get a sense of what is normal, so I can know what I should expect to be seeing. Thank you for reading this -.-

I have Lupus, my kidneys are shot. I drink drink and drink, then my body says, something like 10 hours later, oh ok, I'm going to process now and you can pee! LOL I usually pee small small amounts about 10 times a day, 2-3 times a night.

Depends on how much I drink, usually no more than 3 times a day.

I pee all the flippin' time. When I drink 70-80 oz of water a day, I'm literally in the bathroom every 15-20 minutes. It's ridiculous.

I drink a looooooooot of water, sometimes close to a gallon a day. I pee all day long. But I'm hydrated, so yay

Honestly, I have no idea! I just tried to think about it and nope, I've got nothing. I guess I don't go often but I do go a lot...

Since my last son was born I can not hold any kind of liquids longer than an hour it sucks but I think its more a bladder issue than kidneys but who knows I drink water all day long

I don't keep track, but I guess every 2-3 hours.
