Ok, I had better clarify why I even asked the question about
revision. In Dallas, the doctor who did my implant was/is an experienced reconstruction uro & instructor @ UTSouthwestern, having gained much experience in Afghanistan/Iraq, putting soldiers back together. My device is still working after four years, & I don't think I could ever go back to where I was before he "fixed" me with the 800 AUS (& 700 IPP). I also had absolutely no control except at night. When I stood up, it all came pouring out and leaking all day long... into 8, 10, 12 pads per day. I had tried all the things possible, after my radical prostatectomy (by a smarty, know-it-all surgeon, who didn't know diddly). I went for 18 months post-surgery with no relief or erection. Cutting this story short, after the AMS 800 & 700, I have my life back. But I get terribly frustrated by that involuntary releasing of the AUS after I "mis-sit", which is often. I had 39 radiation treatments just a few months ago, & I think it affected my urethrea where the cuff is. So at the end of the day, my one-per-day panti-liner is a little more full than it used to be. So I'm thinking, "Should I talk to uro about
a revision?" I know the answer is "no". But I feel that under "obamacare" (after it's fully implemented), and at my age (69), I'll not have a chance with Medicare & suplemental. Or maybe, just to shorten this whole thing, I'm just worrying too much. Come to think of it, I am worryingl too much & even with more leaking than I likle, it's still 199 % bettr than before. Gene214
P. S. To all of you with no urine control & having tried everything else to regain continence, get the AMS 800 &, if needed, like I did, get the AMS 700 too. If that sounds like a commercial, maybe it is. It's my testimonial. I just like being normal again (including making love again with my sweet wife).
