    if you are really incontinent then look into.. i think it's medicaid and they should be able to help you out if you don't have money also don't be ashamed, it's a medical issue that you didn't decide on, not something you wanted

    if not, you will have to deal sorry

    i was told it is covered if the doctor tests you for true incontinence, i definitely could be wrong since i never went threw the incontinence testing process

    It depends on the state whether or not they'll cover diapers, and even in the states that do it's generally only done if other treatment methods are not effective or (as is my case), actually part of the cause of your incontinence.

    Cath removal done incorrectly. Ironically it was part of a test to find out why I was having troubles with bed wetting actually. I don't remember the exact specifics, but essentially while trying to remove the damn thing it got stuck and the nurse kept pulling not realizing what had happened. It ended up damaging one of the muscles (and they suspect nerves as well). It didn't cause problems immediately, but it has weakened over the years to the point that I wear 24/7 due to the leakage issues.
