Soon I'm going in surgery. It's called sacral nerve stimulator.

Should I go for a different surgery?

Are you in England or Europe? There are two kinds of stimulators and procedures. The first is called a Brindley stimulator which includes cutting of some dorsal spinal roots. The second is made by Medtronics and do not involve cutting any spinal roots.
