I went through the physical therapy. I had biofeedback, ultrasound imaging and TENS stimulation. The therapist was convinced I was doing the kegels correctly and my muscles were strong. I still leaked.
I had a short sphincter and no amount of kegeling would ever fix me.
The sling works. The major downside is the length of time it takes to pee.
2.5 to 3 minutes.
Send me an email if you want more info.
