Question Anal gland problem

Has anyone any experience of this my sisters dog has suffered with her glands for ages, she is a 7yr old collie x springer
The vet has suggested anal gland removal surgery

She was told this can in rare cases lead to incontinance so is not sure what to do.

The dog gets really distressed at having her glands empty poor thing .
She has a good diet with added bran which was recomended by the vet.

Any advice i can pass on please.
