Double Ureter

I am a 48yr old woman who was recently diagnosed with having a double ureter from one kidney & a single ureter on the other. Although I had a couple of UTI's when I was younger I don't have the problems like so many poor souls mention on here.
The only thing I do have is incontinence which I've had for the past 10 years.
My gynecologist thinks I have a tear in my bladder & was going to do surgery to have it fixed.
But would it be the double ureter causing the incontinence instead?
Thanks,

As far as I know (I'm a biologist, not a doc) there is no connection between a double ureter (a physical plumbing issue) with incontinence (neuro-muscular issue). My cousin gave me a kidney with a double ureter and neither one of us have had problems.
