Monarch sling problems

I had surgery to address incontinence.  A monarch sling was installed.  Within 10 days I urinated without warning or control twice.  My surgeon said I still had a lot of fluid in my bladder after I thought I had voided completely so he did an adjustment in the office.  I have since urinated 3 times with no warning or control.  My surgeon says the sling is too tight and wants to go in and cut the sling.  He tells me I am in the 1% of women for whom the sling fails.  Do I need a second opinion or is this a normal problem.

Several years ago , I had  the monarch installed , when I had my hysterectomy. My life has never been the same since. I am very private. So up until now I feel there is hope for what I am going thru. It is embarrasìng and humilliating  as a woman under 50 to have such problems, and live with it. DO NOT HAVE  THIS PROCEDURE DONE. It is a blessing to read your post and know your not alone.
