Concerned About Bladder Sling

On July 13, I had bladder sling surgery, to correct ongoing stress incontinence. At this point, I’m concerned that this surgical procedure may not have been fully effective in correcting this ongoing, distressing issue.

Unfortunately, I’m still continuing to have symptoms that are consistent with stress incontinence. Perhaps this reflects the fact that I also received a total laparoscopic hysterectomy, plus oophorectomy, on the very same day.

I certainly hope that I will not require any additional surgeries to correct this issue, but this seems to appear to be the case. It was my understanding that reception of bladder sling surgery would have immediately corrected my stress incontinence symptoms.

Thankfully, I have a follow-up appointment with my surgeon in just a few more days. I’m looking forward to discussing my ongoing symptoms with my gynecologist.
