    Leg bag for the Shower?

    I'm looking for a good bag to wear in the shower. I want one thats easy to hook up, not with those button straps.

    We don't recommend ANY leg bags with button straps. Bad for your skin and circulation.

    Our vinyl Hollister leg bags come with an elastic and velcro strap, and can be used dry or in the shower (they are also totally latex free). If you use it in the shower you need to have a separate dry set of straps that you can apply after showering.

    There are several types and brands of elastic/velcro straps you can get and add to a variety of leg bags. What brand do you use?

    I assume you use an indwelling catheter, not a condom catheter. If you use a condom catheter don't wear one in the shower at all.

    Quick question, why do you want one for the shower?

    You need to give your boy some air, why not just piss in the shower if you really have to go and when your done with the shower put on a new condom cath?

    I'm using bard with the velcro straps that doesn't stay on when wet. Plus my nurses keep strapping it over the darn bag closing the dranage port. they always put it on backwards.

    My son has a flip flow that connects the supa pubic to the leg bag. We turn the flip flow off, and take the leg bag off whilst Josh showers. Then reconnect and then turn the flip flow on, when he's finished.It helps keep the bladder from shrinking so im told
