Sudden Loss of bladder control morning

Hello, I am scheduled for a laminotomy tomorrow at 12:30. The last two mornings when I got out of bed, stood up urine started gushing out before I could get to the toilet.
The rest of the day I am fine. I have read about cauda eqina. I don't know if I should call the doctor, it is Sunday so I assume I won't get my doctor. I am not sure what to do. I guess the pain meds could cause me to sleep so deeply that I am sleeping through the urge to urinate
Has anyone else experience this? I am not sure where to post this
Any advice would be appreciated
Thank you
