Bill, Just curious about
the actual rate of your leaking. I was using 6-8 full depends Guards for Men. I basically had no control at all. I could feel the leaking all the time while standing or moving around. As for my Sling Adventure I knew going into it I would probably not get total relief but I was thinking if I could get down to one or two pads a day I would be happy considering where I was before! Unfortunately I did not get any long term relief. After the proceedure I did notice some significant change. But as time went on and the swelling all went down the leaking came back to where it was.
I will say that for me, the proceedure was more painful and the recovery was longer than what I was expecting from the information that was on the video from the manufacturer.
Check out my links below to get a more detailed story on my Journey.
Feel free to send me a e-mail if you would like more information. I am even willing to talk on the phone if you wish.
