|Halacha - catheter|
|Submitted by Abba Silver Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
Yes, as long as the bag and tube are covered. There is a machlokes if urine at the time of its discharge is deOraisa like feces or not, and with a catheter since there is no sensation of the discharge and the person would be unable to daven or wear tefillin for an extended period of time if we were machmir, the Poskim rely on the lenient opinion and permit it.
