In November, 2011, I had surgery to implant an artificial urinary sphincter from American Medical Systems. It made my incontinence worse! My urologist said that the sphincter caused me to have an overactive bladder.
In June, 2011, my urologist deactivated the sphincter. My incontinence was initially much worse than before the sphincter. I have been doing the Kegel exercises, and the incontinence has improved to seven or eight Depends per day, but that is still worse than before the sphincter.
