Q.

Is surgery for stress incontinence worth the risk and the pain in the long run?

I've been trying to do kegels for months and I still having lots of trouble doing them. I know how to do them but still can't do them. Every time I do to the doctor he just reexplains how to do kegels, but last time he says I can try to continue to do kegels or have surgery for the stress incontinence. I am wondering if surgery is a good option, whats the risk and is it worth it in the long run if I don't have to worry about peeing myself when I cough and sneeze.

Thank you so much
