Im considering the bladder sling but am getting scared reading the negative stories here and seeing ads for lawsuits. How safe is it and what are the projected problems assiociated with it and what is the success rate percentage in term studies?
From reading your post a assume you are considering a mid-urethra sling for Stress Urinary Inconitinence. The vast majority of patients do very well with slings and complications are rare. There were some problems with early slings but most of those issues have been addressed. You should be properly evaluated to determine if a sling is the correect treatment and I would recommend having the procedure done by somebody that routinely does pelvic organ prolapse surgery. Success rates are reported from 85 to 95 percent and as with all surgeries the risk of infection, bleeding, injury, and failure of the procedure even though rare are possibilities.
