My prostate was removed. I had an AUS installed in October 2010, it never worked properly. In March 2011 the doctor installed a second cuff for the AUS. Urine control improved slightly, but was still unacceptable. In July 2011 the AUS totally failed, the balloon that holds the AUS fluid ruptured. In early October 2011, the failed AUS was removed and replaced with a new AUS, which was activated after 4 weeks. The new AUS is not working either, I am almost totally incontinent.
After 3 failed AUS surgeries, I am at a loss for what to try next.
I am looking for a doctor who is a REAL expert in male incontinence who will enable me to regain urinary continence. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
