Please continue hanging out! I do not know of another uro who has jumped in on our posts, although there may have been. Some of us are very desperate to get over our incontinence (and impotence) and have had little or no success. Moreover, the lines of communications with our urologists are not always as open as they should be. I feel confident that most on this forum will respect your privacy and will not overburden you for second-hand diagnoses.
As for me, my hopes for successful healing took a great big leap at your responses on this and KW's post. Many of us are so very suspicious of devices being placed in our bodies. After all, we with continuing incontinence are fearful of having other procedures for fear it may only lead to more severe problems. So I see your "hanging out" as keeping hopes for future healing alive. Please stay with us.
