I (a male) used a urinal bottle for the first 3 weeks or so after my fusion. It was a LOT easier than having to get up, struggle down the hall, and deal with sitting and getting up from the toilet, which was the hardest part. Of course, defacating was a different story... speaking of which, it's a good thing to take a stool softener if you're on heavy narcotics like morphine, and also good to have some milk of magnesia to get things moving on occasion.
