have you tried taking some immodium or lomotil before bed to help slow things down a bit, mabye that will give you some more sack time
This may help but be sure to ask your surgeon first if it's ok to take it. My surgeon told me no Imodium for two weeks post op then I could try it if I wanted to. I know they all have different opinions so that could've just been my surgeon's thing.
