Ed, thanks for posting the link.
The webcast is still available; my wife & I have both watched it. If anyone is at ALL interested, you should watch it. Only part of the webcast is the operation, and that part is easy to watch, too.
I'm headed over to Durham this afternoon, and go to Duke's outpatient surgical center at 0600 for an 0715 operation. Dr. Webster is another of the surgeon's involved in the clinical trials for the AdVance Male Sling, and will be doing mine.
The comments in the webcast are very encouraging; my biggest worry lately is what if this *doesn't* work. The webcast went a long way toward reducing that fear.
My leakage amount is a little bit under 100ml/day, as calculated with a locally weighted statistical smoothing algorithm. Can pictures be posted to this forum? (I haven't looked to see) If so, I'll post my chart
