Hello

Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have undergone ?(Open Surgery) for Prostate in 1998 and facing problem of getting incontinence.This is due to damage to the muscle ( Sphincter of Urethra) which controls the Urine Flow .Since you have tried almost al available options the last remedy is to implant Artificial Sphincter
