Hopefully you mean after first waking, because you should not be getting up at night to urinate. Hesitancy, as it's called, is only a symptom, not a problem itself. Since it's not persistent, and a thorough exam did not find any problem, I'd go with the urologist and say you don't have a problem.

First, NEVER strain to urinate. Also stop getting up to go and wait until you actually have to go. You may be forcing a habit and getting a mixed signal from nerves to think you have to urinate when it's actually something else irritating your penis (like a mild allergy to your bedclothes). Lastly, stop drinking fluids sooner than you do before bedtime so you don't fill up the tank overnight and see if that makes a difference.
