Deanna, I had two collagen injections, the AdVance male sling, then two more collagen injections. Unfortunately neither has given me any long term relief.
The injection arent all that bad. If he is only leaking a little it might be worth a try! I do not like the idea of having the AUS done at 45 years old. But it looks like my only option at this point.
My personal e-mail is on my HW profile. Feel free do drop a line any time you want. I am also willing to talk on the phone if you or your husband wish too.
