You may ask yourself how often you should empty your bag. This varies according to the person, as is the case with people who urinate normally. It also may matter how much liquid you drink. On average you may need to empty you urostomy bag every two to four hours. Emptying your bag on a regular basis is a must. This will help it to stay discreet under your clothes and you to limit the risks of leaks.
Another information may be interesting for you: If your urostomy is an ileal conduit, then the urine output may contain mucus. This mucus is secreted from the intestinal segment which was used to create your urostomy. The mucus may decrease and sometimes disappear over a few months, but it can also stay present, whether or not it is visible to the naked eye.
