Artificial Sphincter Valve


My oncologist suggested that the implantation of an Artificial Sphincter Valve might alleviate my current situation-total incontinence. Does anyone have personal experience with this procedure and were the results obtained positive in terms of lessening of symptoms and also were longer periods of continence experienced?

Many thanks,
