A Urine bag can either be a leg bag, and is a device used to collect and hold urine. It is worn on the leg and it can be worn above or below the knee. Leg bags can be attached directly to a Foley catheter or an external condom catheter
Urine drainage bags collect urine. Your bag will attach to a catheter (tube) that is inside your bladder. You may have a catheter and urine drainage bag because you have urinary incontinence (leakage), urinary retention (not being able to urinate), surgery that made a catheter necessary, or another health problem.
Empty your leg bag at regular intervals to avoid it becoming too full and heavy, which may pull on your catheter. This should occur every 2 to 3 hours or when the bag is about half to three-quarters full.
It’s possible to live a relatively normal life with a long-term urinary catheter, although it may take some getting used to at first.
