    larger leg bag

    I currently have a small leg bag (500 or 600 cc.) I'm a small person with a small leg and small pants legs. Anyone know if a larger leg bag fit in my pants when full or near full?

    I've been looking into electric leg bag openers, but I have no place to empty one, and don't know if I would see the tube at the bottom if I did get one.

    Alan, most people who use an electric leg bag drainer just let it drain into the bushes outside, in the gutter, or into a floor drain in a roll-in shower. There are "floor toilets" but they are expensive:

    To use one, out just position your drainage tube either on the inner ankle or behind your heel and then learn how to position your chair so your drain tube ends up where you want it (and not down your shoe), like this:


    Most leg bag manufacturers make a 32 oz. as their largest size (about 900 cc.). For example, here is the range of bags available from Bard:

    I can't get into my shower without an aide, nor get outside (and wouldn't when it's cold.) I've been looking for an automatic door for the inside and storm doors, but no luck so far.

    Alan, this is a German product on a UK website so I would think there's a chance you can find this 1300cc leg bag in the US.

    Urocare makes a 44 oz. latex bag, which I use. Not sure if it's compatible with your catheter, but I use a Foley type.
