I'm almost 62 and I smoked most of my life, and I'm not surprised I came down with bladder cancer. I might try to go ahead and apply for social security, but I really can't afford it right now. If I continue to work, I would like to try to keep the leaks and mishaps to a minimum.

Finding out about other peoples pros and cons about having problems installing and maintaining the urostomy bag. I understand it is different for everyone, but I can pick and choose ideas that might be helpful to my own situation.I got mine a couple of months ago, and my wife and I have learned a lot, but I would like to see how other people are handling theirs and maybe avoid future surprise failures. I've had my share LOL
