I had my prostate removed in June of 2001 and am still experiencing some incontinence. I am looking for any feedback on the 'Sling' surgury.

lawrence, you don't say what you're doing to manage your incontinence. I was prescribed a Cunningham clamp and I wear pads. The two together work very well for me and allow me to lead a completely normal life. jimirish2

I wear pads. When I am working I drastically reduce my fluid intake which reduces the leakage. The feeling of needing to urinate all the time is constantly there though.
