I have had stress incontinence since I had a hysterectomy five years ago. I have also had two children with long, drawn out labor. I had the Pubo Vaginal Sling surgery four years ago and started leaking again after about six months. Since then I have had three different surgeries to inject three different bulking agents between the bladder and uretha. The bulking surgeries only last about three months and then it's back to the leaking. I am so, so very discouraged thinking this is how it will be the rest of my life. I am only 41. Is there any other options for me to try?View Thread
