I,m 18 months post da vinci prostatectomy and i,m still leaking, i was hoping to be ok now as about 6months ago i went from wearing the
bloody awfulwrap round tena thingy,s to a the little v shaped ones you put in the front... alas things didnt get anty better, i,m still only
using about 2 a day which is great i spose listening to a lot of the guys on here but i must admit its been getting me down.
Last week i had my appt with my urologist, ( the one who did the surgery doesnt see me anymore) as my psa has been 00.5 or thereabouts from just after my surgery and YES that is fantastic :) so i,m "remotely monitored" but the waterworks :( anyway my uro seems to think after 18months
there isnt much chance of any improvement... so i.ve studied all the options botox, sacral nerve stimulation et etc and the one that ive
opted for is an advance sling, trouble is as you know its difficult to get anyway opinions on this apart from the ones that come up when you
ask mr google... i p.m,d a guy on here called john aka fireblade who very kindly told me how it was a successful op for him and he was glad he did it, other than that only Tony p seems to know anything about this procedure ... by the way i,m dry at night, always have been
and i,m fine when sitting down, but like someone else who posted leak a fair bit as soon as i stand...
i dont want this op but also dont want to wear pads for the rest of my life.... i,m on the waiting list at a major hosp in Leeds and the dr said
it may be 3/4 months..i,.m hoping for a miracle :) but if i do end up having the op i,ll post my details of surgery, pain, improvement etc on here so anyone else can be informed, ive had some great info from people like Lynn and Bri and many more on this site and am grateful for that :) Anyway all the best mate
