My husband, who is 70 yrs. old had a prostectomy two years ago and has been leaking through 4 pads a day.

He decided to have the AdVance Sling procedure to stop the leakage. His surgeon explained the procedure as using a material to create a pressure on the urethra and held in place by titanium bone screws into the pelvic bone.

He had the procedure four weeks ago and he only has slight leakage now, which is great, but there has been another problem. He is constant pain and has been to the emergency room twice. He can barely stand, sit or do anything but lie down since the operation. Even the pain pills are not helping. All the tests came up negative. The doctor is sugesting a pain management program and if that doesn't work, he will have to remove the sling. My husband doesn't want it removed because it is working, but he can't go on like this either.

If any one has had a similar experience or any suggestions, pleas let me know?

Veronica
