    You know that thing when...

    You are vacuuming and the cord gets caught on the lever of your leg bag and it opens without you knowing and you make a trail of pee through your just cleaned house? Yeah, that just happened to me. :-(

    Better on the floor than in your shoe!

    Time to buy a Dyson cordless. I have been immobilized more times than I can remember getting trailing cords tangled in my chair. Regarding the leg bag, I always put on an extra clamp, still occasionally fill a shoe.

    Sometimes I clean the floor in my jammies while still wearing the foley and night bag ... and YES! The damn cord gets tangled in my foley tube constantly!

    They should be issued when you leave rehab.

    I'm new to having a Foley, so I'm learning as I go. It has happened a couple of times while getting dressed, so now I tape the lever down. I will have to remember to do the same when I vacuum. And I was wearing my slippers, and they got soaked. I had to wash my lower leg and foot, and threw my slippers in the laundry with some jeans I had just started (I was very productive this last weekend, which is unusual for me!), so now my slippers are a dirty dingy graysh color. LOL.

    I tried using those legbags with a flip lever years ago and after catching them when transferring, removing pants, etc., I quickly went back to the bard cap-to-close bags. Be careful to rotate the lip/tab of the cap to slightly forward to prevent it snagging the footrest and you get no wet feet(haven't wore shoes since rehab). I use a wet/dry vac and the worst thing is getting the hose behind my wheels to trap me in a corner lol. I fuss about that almost every time I vacuum. It has taught me patience
