As another reply posted, don't sweat this so soon after surgery. At that point it was true for me too. Nowadays, 3 months post surgery, I can even load up on heavy late night snacks and still rarely have to empty at night. I tend to pee at least once in the night so sometimes I'll empty for a twofer but only if I feel like it- many times I dont bother. Gas will also be vastly less for you in a few more weeks, most likely.
I'll ad that at your stage I once slept thru the night without emptying due to sleeping aid meds and the bag had inflated like a huge balloon but was still as secure as ever- it really has amazing expansion capability it seems. Luckily I dont sleep on my stomach- I coukd see that early on post surgery, stomach sleeping could be hazardous with a "ballooned" pouch.
