I’ve been looking into getting a sling. The urologist that I work with in my home state says that he’s done a lot of them, and in every case, the patient needs to self-cath for a while afterwards (I think he said a month or so) as they cannot urinate otherwise. After that period, it gets to where they can push the urine out naturally.
Dr Eid (who did my penile implant) says that doctor must be doing them too tight, as he’s never had that be an issue (his sling recipients have not had to self-cath).
I’m wondering what common experience here has been, among guys who have gotten the sling. I need to pick a doctor in my home state to do this, but want to know what reasonable expectations of outcome are first.
I’d love to just go back to Dr. Eid for the sling, but I can’t afford to do that, as insurance will not cover that since he’s out of state.
