Home invasion, shot in the stomach. Taken to hospital and had surgery. Have a colostomy bag. Now the hospital will not take the colostomy bag out because i do not have insurance. Is this right? I didn't ask to be shot. They also left half the bullet in me.

There may also be issues with the treatment in terms of whether or not stabilizing you was within the standard of care, and whether or not they actually had any obligation beyond that.
