You will need an external urine drainage bag when using an external (condom) catheter or an indwelling catheter. Both leg bags and bedside drainage bags may be needed and have multiple options available so you can make choices that will best meet your needs.
Leg bags come in many shapes and sizes. You will need to choose what works for you based on many factors. Where you position the leg bag and your leg length are important when deciding on the size. You will also need to consider your hand function and flexibility when choosing your leg bag as there are several choices in the valve that empties the bag (T-Tap, Fas-Tap, Twist Drainage, etc.). Leg bags are made of vinyl or latex. The vinyl ones are considered disposable and the latex ones reusable. Straps are available in latex, fabric and fabric with hook and loop closures. You may also need a tubing/connector kit to connect the bag to the external (condom) or indwelling catheter.
Night drainage or bed bags are also a consideration and come in 2000ml and 4000ml sizes, single or double hook and different valves. A night drainage bottle is also available. These typically come with tubing attached.
