Veronica, I'm sorry to hear that your husband is having trouble. You may want to talk to your Dr. or someone else. It sounds like they did not use the AMS AdVance Male Sling. This is a device made specifically for men. There are no screws involved. From what I understand, when screws are involved they are using either a stock material or a sling made for women. I know he does not want to go backward. But he should not have to live in pain the rest of his life. If he could tolerate another surgery, maybe you could find a Dr. that would remove the "sling" he has in now and replace it with the AdVance Brand Name sling.
I am no Dr. Just trying to think of some options I would be considering.
