    Thank you all for the advice. Now I have some experimenting to do and a place to start. I just knew that I didn't want to give up my skirts and dresses, even with my tiny legs, but it wasn't something that was addressed in rehab and no one that I asked seemed to have the answers that I was looking for.

    And Addiesue, thank you for the greeting.

    Hi Helen,
    Just wanted to add my welcome, I'm kinda new here too. I'm in TN too.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I didn't realize there were so many women in TN besides me. Maybe we should talk sometime.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    It sounds almost like TN is handicapped central! Either that or we're all living too dangerously. LOL

    vjls, I think that has come up before by the way, you might try the search.

    I am a para, so not much help, but I have used several different leg bags, and run into many different types of valves. Some are tricky even with full function. You might want to try different brands?

    get a quad clamp.

    remove the screw drain valve on bottom of leg bag, replace with the above. all you need do is flip the lever, no fingers needed. note: only compatible with the urocare latex leg bags i referenced in earlier post.

    Many of my clients who have a C6-7 injury can empty any of the Flip-Flo type leg bags that Bard makes. This is pretty easy using the side of your hand to open or close. Check them out.

    You may need to add a longer extension tube at the bottom to make it easier to read a urinal or toilet for draining, and if you don't have sufficient hip ROM it can be much more difficult. For those who use power chairs, you can get a powered leg bag emptier (and water the roses or flush the gutter when in public!).
