Can't find the post,poster; but remember reading about issue with I think short bowel syndrome, frequently getting up at night to empty. A high output pouch might be worth a try.
High output pouches have spouts; they can also be connected to a drainage bag at night to siphon out stool and keep the pouch flat; however the stool would have to be fairly liquid.
Hollister, Convatec and Coloplast all make high output pouches;
Coloplast 's drainage attachment/tubing that is a bit wider than the other companies and to my recollection the only company that has a drainage bag specifically for their high output pouch. For the other companies, you would need a regular urinary dainage bag.
The pouches are a bit larger to hold more volume. The downside: pouches get heavier with larger volumes and may start pulling on the skin barrier/wafer which could cause a leak.
If interested, go to any of the companies Websites and put in the search "High Output Pouch"
Someone mentioned they were going to invent such a pouch/drainage system. I hope so!!! I think a lot of folks would be interested.
