Thanks for the detailed info. Yes, I am aware that I can do a sling first and then AUS if that does not work. But, I am wondering how that works with the various sling options:
AdVance - appears to be pretty clear cut to reverse.
InVance- Since this is anchored to the bone with 4 screws does this complicate removal to go to the AUS.
Virtue- Since this sling anchors to the tissue and actually involves the tissue "scaring" around and healing into place one would think it would be more difficult to remove if one were to need it removed to go t the AUS. This is what bbbob was facing as he was going in for surgery to have his Virtue removed.....needed to be cut out as much as possible.
While dealing with constipation have you consider using Metamucil on a regular basis. For years I have had my morning cocktail which is orange juice with about a tablespoon or two of Metamucil. After my RP surgery I was dealing with constipation when taking the various medications (pain killers really slow down your bowels) they asked me to take. Even Dulcolax plus the Metamucil did not fix the constipation issues but both helped.
