I'm sorry to hear about your problems, and I think it's good that you want to do something about it. Incontinence is maddening, and life is too short to live with it. After 14 months, I think it's time to act.
Between the sling and the AUS, the sling is the more conservative approach. You want to try to find a urologist who's really experienced with this. They'll do urodynamics testing to see if you're a good candidate for the sling and that will give you much better information on which to make a decisions. The tests are easy, but leave your modesty at home when you go in.
I have the AdVance sling, which has worked really well for a lot of guys here. It didn't completely solve my problem, but things are much better since I had the sling surgery. It was certainly worth it.
Whatever you decide, I wish you dryness. Only somebody who's been through it can understand how utterly frustrating incontinence really is. I'm always glad to see guys like you who want to act on it. I hope you get some relief.
