I don't want medications for urinary incontinence so I am resorting to wearing diapers.

Drugs have side effects. Diapers and collectors cause infections and irritation. Occluder incontinence devices for men are better.

An artificial sphincter was installed one year ago for urinary incontinence. It failed 6 months later. A second was installed 6 days ago and it failed after 5 days. What is next!
