This is going to depend on what type of procedure was done in the first place, there are multiple procedures for vaginal slings. Basically the physician is removing the sling that was put in place. I would encourage you to question your physician about what the plan is, to simply remove the sling (incontinence issues will return) or to replace the sling with a different type of sling or material. Is this a urogynecologist doing the procedure? Do you have pelvic organ prolapse issues or is this basic stress urinary incontinence that was initially treated? Is the reason for removal pain or are there stitches protruding from the vagina? Ask your physician (or one of the nurses at his office) to explain to you in detail about the excision both immediately after procedure and for the next couple of weeks so you know what to expect.
