Definitions differ.: There is, of course, a wide range. You can say that the average male bladder capacity is around 400-600ml, or 13-20 fluid ounces. This would be the volume voided after holding urine to the point of severe urgency. If the patient is under anesthesia and the bladder distended with water, the bladder can usually hold even more, around 1000ml or 33 fl. Oz. ...Read more

I can hold about 12L of urine.. I don't always wait that long but that's my bladder capacity, do I just have a big bladder or something to worry about?

Generally, a bladder holds some 0.25 - 0.5 L. So, either 12 or 1.2 L is too much. Is it normal? A detailed evaluation to assess your voiding pattern, check postvoid residual urine, urinalysis, etc. is needed. To assure such, see urologist timely. ...Read more

Maybe...: Clinically and apparently, you have been treated for unstable bladder with frequency &/or urgency. Now, if feeling comfortable in voiding without it, you may discontinue it. If recurring and having been effective with it, you may resume its use. Of course, it is good idea to know what may be your underlying cause for unstable bladder. More? Seek re-evaluation & counseling. ...Read more
