Re: surgery for urinary incontinence?
I know one guy who had the sling and one who had the sphincter. They were both completely successful -- they use no pads anymore. They tell me the new ones work great. The sling is the less invasive procedure, with only a few days of catheter time afterwards. I know there are different kinds of slings that attach differently. The sphincter has a "button" that is pressed in the scrotal sac, so may be more of a bother than the sling. They both said that sitting was problematic for about a week afterwards, there was little pain, and the recovery wasn't bad at all - much less than their robotic RPs. Installation requires a specialist who knows what he's doing, just like any other surgery.
