And Gene, I am getting the IPP as well and thanks for your posting on that subject. Reading what others have shared about their experience really helps. When I was getting diaxnosed I read about incontinence and the various treatments I it never crossed my mind that the AUS would be where I would end up. I thought, "good god!" they do what!!!!!
And when a guy at work got the IPP about 20 years ago, we all snickered. Yeah we got a good chuckle. Funny how things work out. Now it's me getting one!
I am looking forward to an almost sure thing with the IPP as it should work, the AUS has me worried as I don't have any idea what results I will have. Anyway thanks and I will try to share my experience when this all happens.
