How soon after using the bathroom must one make an asher yatzar bracha? For example after going to the gym and using the bathroom can you take a shower or do you need to first exit the bathroom area, make an asher yatzar and then return for the shower?

I am racking my brain to remember where I heard it, but someone asked a posek this question in my presence, and he said one has until the next time an event comes up that would require the b'racha. –  WAF Jun 13 '13 at 1:17
one should say it right away, but if he did not, he can say it until the next time he goes. the reason he should say it right away, is because if he has to go again, then the new beracha will not exempt the old beracha. learned this once, cant remember the exact source though. –  ray Jun 13 '13 at 10:13
