Sling Procedure

I had incontinence during intercourse.  I had a sling procedure done 10 weeks ago. The right side didn't heal properly. The mesh used was exposed and I was in extreme pain. Surgery was redone. Part of the mesh was removed, area was irrigted and the original incision was resewn. The dr. said I could return to work the following day but I have not returned to work.

It's been 2 weeks I still have a fever from 99.9 - 100.5 (Normal for me is 97.6) The incision is still not completely healed and pain radiates down my right leg.  Is it normal to have a fever and be in pain? I call the dr.'s office and they say not to worry unless it gets up to 102.  I've called area dr.'s and they say it's not life threatening.  I can't walk without limping from the pain.

The vaginal walls are all cut up.  Is that correctable?

Just to be on the safe side, it may be a good idea to schedule an exam with your surgeon to ensure there is no evidence of infection.  One cannot tell complications simply by a conversation over the phone.  

The pain from the surgery typically should subside within a few weeks.  Things like infection and bleeding can lead to prolonged discomfort, and hence, should be evaluated in person.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
