Thanks for your quick reply! Actually the nerve wasn't cut over completely, only damaged. It wasn't operated until 13 days after I cut it.

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! The surgeon did a tumor resection but was unable to remove it due to the location/risks.

That's interesting. If you google "frequent urination chiari" you'll see many listings. Thanks again for your help.
