Bladder Tack Surgery

Posted By Tami Fields on June 30, 1999 at 11:11:20
I am a 35 year old female.I started having bladder leakage after having my first child. It got worse after my second child in 1996. I had a bladder tack in 1997. It worked for about 6 months. Then I started leaking again. I returned to my urologiest and went through several test and it was suggested I have another bladder tack but it would be more complicated than the first. I told my urologist that I wanted him to do whatever it took because I did not want to go through this surgery again.
I had heard of the sling procedure and I had discussed this with my urologist but he didn't think I should have this procedure. I did have another bladder tack in the spring of 1998. It worked for 7 months.I am now leaking again. When I cough, sneeze, talk loud, walk for a long distance and have sex with my husband I leak.  I am now in a dilemma about what I should do next? I am
very active and I do not want to live with leaking and wearing pads. I am also
wanting a second opinion. Do you have any ideas? Do you know of a urologist in the Greenville, South Carolina area I could let see my medical files?
