bladder sling

I had a bladder sling 10 years ago. I am having alot of lower stomach problems, painful intercourse, and also bowel problems. I've been to a gas. specialist and have had both scopes done and ct scan with no reply or information from the doctors as to what is going on with me. How often should the sling be replaced or repaired? And could the sling be the cause of the bowel problem that I am having?

A sling does not need to be replaced unless it has failed, i.e.. you are experiencing stress urinary incontinence again.  It is unlikely the sling is causing your problems.  You might see a urogynecologist so they can evaluate your sling and see if they can find any reason for you pain with intercourse.
