I had a Davinci TH on 4/8 and Monarc Sling placement for stress incontinence. I have since had a UTI and developed urge incontinence vs bladder spasm in the 3 weeks I have been postop. I find this incontinence much more troubling as I cannot stop the flow like I could when I was leaking due to a change in the intrabdominal pressure with the stress incontinence. I start to leak and cannot stop it, the volume is greater and I need greater protection than before. I have no trouble emptying my bladder nor have I ever since surgery. My voiding challenge post op yielded 750cc.
Is this due to the surgery? WIll it subside on its own. My doc says there is nothing to do but wait. I don't know what exactly I am waiting for, however. I do find this development extremely troubling as this type of incontinence seems worse to me than the stress incontinence which I no longer experience. Does anyone have anymore info out there on this??View Thread
