Has anyone had the da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy with trendelenburg positioning who also had a herniated disc at L5S1? I am very nervous about anchoring the mesh to my sacrum with that preexisting injury as well as going through surgery at a 40 degree tilt! I have an artificial hip as well so all of the repositioning is scary and I have to have the surgery. Anyone with the same thing? Thanks.
Welcome to the POP forum. I have not undergone this procedure so cannot comment personally. However, I wonder if you would consider posting your question on the Ask a Dr part of the site under Urogynecology as well as Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
