Got it covered. Went for a follow up at my family practice. During the visit the PA asked if I ever had to go during the night. I said yes, then she asked how many times I got up. You should have seen her face when I answered never. I then took pity on her and explained that with my back and knees, I would just lay there for a moment or two, then turn over, swing around, sit up, and then use a urine jug. Then sit for a moment or so, before laying down again. Believe me, my back and knees thank me for that every time. Realistically, I start using the jug before I even go to bed - I sit on the side of the bed and take my inhalants before going to bed, and often have to go while doing that, so it's jug time.
I actually have 3 jugs. Got 1 when I had my colon resection, and kept it. Later, when my back started acting up, started using it. Got it pretty full a time or 2, and would have to get up and empty it, then empty it again in the morning. So got another. Then every once in a great while would fill the 2 of them and have to get up in the middle of the night again. So, got a 3d, and that is very seldom used, but so glad I have it. Now I can wait for morning to actually get up and go to the bathroom. I highly recommend jugs if it is an effort to get up.
