Leakage after sling procedure

My wife, was gone through Sling procedure in August 2010. She was not leaking before surgery but stated leaking after that. Although her bladder problem that was not emptying before surgery now started to empty after that. She was undergone Radiation of utrius in 1993 due to cancer. As a result of Radiation her nerves and skin shrink.
Here doctor who did sling procedure said that the tissues near the bladder to Urethia have been gone due to Radiation  and so sling did not stop leakage . What is the cause of leakage and what can be done now?.
