Post Prostate Surgery Issues

I had DaVinci laproscopy surgery in 2007 to remove my prostate. This was followed up by radiation therapy in 2008 to make sure nothing was missed "outside the box". The plan was to do kegel exercises to keep the incontinence in-check. It seemed to work somewhat until I hit some seasonal allergies in the spring of 2009 and again in the fall of 2009. The flow was going so I opted to do Plan B - a male sling. That was inserted in December 2009. That too has not worked. Now I am waiting for Plan C - artificial sphincter. I have tried the external catheter - it does not stay on. As part of all this, I suffer from erectile dysfunction too. When it rains, it pours!
