I had to have my bladder removed in Sept. 2008, due to stage 4 bladder cancer. Now I have no choice but to use urostomy bags. The only insurance I have is medicaid, I've applied for social security, but they tell me I can't get medicare for 2 years. Medicaid won't cover the cost of the bags because they're not a percription item. I have to wear these bags for the rest of my life, I have no choice. I need to know if there's any place I can get help. I just can't afford them. We're on a limited income, my husband is disabled.
