Honest, I am also a AMS AUS Guy. I know we all wish we were 100% were we were before surgery. But, you have to admit 99% is a whole lot better that were you were. I was a 8 + pad a day before my AUS. I am very pleased to just have to wear a light panty liner to catch the few drips and dribbles I still have. My Doctor also said two cuffs were not the risk of complication. He also made me fully aware that 100% could be possible......but not likely. Other than that I am still very pleased I finally did the AUS after two years of wearing pads and trying everything else. Mine has been activated 1 year and I have had no problems at all.
I just wanted to drop a line and say there are some of us that know exactly where you are.
Wish you well
