Hello there. I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s problem. There certainly is hope so don't despair and don't give up. I will refer you to the website for the American Urogynecologic Society (www.augs.org), and the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons (www.sgsonline.org) both websites contain listings for doctors that treat these problems.

I am sorry to hear about your problem. I have not heard of this type of problem being associated with a sling procedure. It is clear, however, that your symptoms are not normal and so I encourage you to persist in your efforts to find an explanation. One might consider the possibility of a pelvic floor neuromuscular source for the pain. The pelvic flo...

Sorry to hear about your problem, Some mesh repairs have been associated with these types of complaints. If you have not addressed these issues with your surgeon do so at once. If you have and are not satisfied find a Urogynecologist in your area who is experienced taking care of complications associated with the use of vaginal mesh. I have seen many su...

Hello, Really not sure what you are seeing. May be completely normal. Where is what you should do. Make an appointment with your gynecologist. If you don't have one it is time to get one. Ask a friend or you mother who they use. At the time of your appointment and during the pelvic exam have them give you a mirror and point out your concerns. T...

Really not sure what the problem is. I would suggest returning to the Urologist or seeking a second opinion. It is not normal to have pain when the bladder is (normally) full. Likewise your urine should not be cloudy and the urethral opening (where the pee comes out) should not be sore. Your doctor may want to repeat the urine analysis and culture. You ma...

Sorry to hear about your complication. Rectal injury is a possible complication of rectocele repair. The fact that this occurred does not mean that a surgical error was made. Hopefully by know you are pretty much recovered and have derived the result you desired. Good luck

Sorry to hear about your problem. Post operative urinary retention (inability to empty the bladder) can be a serious problem. I encourage you to contact your surgeon asap. S/he will need to determine if you are indeed able to adequately empty your bladder on your own. If you are not emptying reasonably well your doctor may want to do (or refer you for) ...

Hi Nikki, Sorry to hear about your trouble. I generally recommend abstinence from vaginal intercourse for six week after surgery. During this time healing is taking place, inflammation is present, and where there is inflammation there is likely to be pain and tenderness. If you are having a problem your surgeon I suspect will see you sooner than you...
