Question Symptoms but any ideas?

Hi, My particular symptom is frequent urination, but I can't think of any others.
The urge typically starts about 6am, then again at 7am, and maybe at 8am when I get up. This, as far as I can recall, is something new. I do "go" often during the day, and pass maybe 2 litres over the day. I have a "weak" bladder and control is certainly less than great. I try to drink a bit during the day to keep my fluids up and avoid dehydration.
Of course I thought this might be diabetes but there is no sign of that as far as I can tell.
Fasting Gluc. is good (5) and the fasting glucose tolerance test is good (6.5 after 2hr) and my HbA1c is also good (around 5.2).
So, I'm wondering what else it can be. I'm 70 y.o. and have had chemo. and radioth. in the past - what that might have done concerns me a bit.
Diet is good, plenty of raw fruit and veggies, little meat (no red meat, a little chicken and fish, and plenty of exercise).
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
