should i have surgery

I am on the waiting list to have a bladder sling. I have become fearful of having this done after knowing about the side effects such as long term catherisation etc that can go wrong. I am in my 30s and it only lasts 10 years at which point i can get another one for another 10 years which still means that i will only be mid 50s when it doesnt work any more. that is quite young to have major incontenance issues. should i delay it or what?
