    Leg Bag - UTI/Bladder Infection

    When is the ideal time to change your leg bag when taking antibiotics to clear up an infection? Some urologist say immediately after starting antibiotics change it. Some say after a few days. You never get the same answer.

    BTW, these are Alpine Reuseable Leg Bags (Latex) I am speaking of.

    We don't change bags under these circumstances as we clean them daily with a 10% bleach solution. Studies have found this effective. If you use this with a latex bag your bags will not last as long though.
