Hi...I'm new here so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Bill Ennis. I'm 56 and reside in Towanda, PA. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer about two years ago. I had robotic surgery in Aug. of 2005 by Dr. Jean Joseph up at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY and have been suffering from incontence and impotence issues ever since. I'm cancer-free but I had the "paste" procedure done, but that didn't help at all. Doc said he could do the artificial sphincter procedure on me and said it would probably make me "dry". It sounds really invasive, but at this point I'm sick and tired of wearing a pad 24/7. Has anyone had this procedure done and could you tell me how it has been working for you. I'd appreciate any input before I make my decision. Write here or email me at: email@example.com. Thanks, in advance, for any opinions.
