I leaked for five years, then had a sling job done.  I'ts the best thing I ever did.  Had it done three years ago.  I'm 76 now. No pads now.
The reason for my delay was it was still considered experimental when I first asked about it, and I couldn't afford the surgery, and insurance wouldn't pay.  When the insurance said they would cover it I had it done right away.
I would say, 'go ahead and get it'
Best wishes to you.
