Just to let everyone know (KW and Gene, you might want to take note), I am scheduled for mid- April to have an AMS 800 installed. I am 8 months past having my prostate removed, and although I have been doing two to three sets of kegels daily, I am still leaking to the point of six to seven pads a day (no way to enjoy life). And two months ago I went to a specialist who did a bladder check, and she said it was doubtful that my continence would return.
Anyway, the procedure sounds pretty simple compared to the last operation, and I can't wait to get this done. Many patients become totally leak free after this, and it is supposedly really easy to use. Do I think there is a chance my continence would have returned after a year or two? Yes, maybe, but doubtful. And this will fix it once and for all. Yee-ha!
