I am so sorry your going thru this and i feel your pain. last november i had an ablassion, this caused me to bleed on a daily basis my gyn told me to wait to see him in the beginning of 2012. i went and got a second opinion, i needed a hysterectomy i also had a urodynamics test and was told i needed a bladder sling ( nothing was ever explained to me about possible issues or what it would do) so in decmeber i had the hysterectomy and the sling placed. a littel over two weeks later i was very sick i had a low grade fever so they thought UTI. i went into the office for a UA and went back home, the next day i tried to eat again( i handnt kept anything down for days) i couldnt keep thins down either and about an hour later i had horrible pain all over my belly.. i though it was bad gas so i took gas x and threw that back up. by this point i was curled up in a ball crying from the pain and i just couldnt move. so off the er! there at triage they told me i was hypotensive and tachycardic. my blood work showed that my white blood count was 22,000 the normal high is 9000. the ct showed i had a mass in my plevis, they called it a vagianl cuff abcess. ( september this year i found out i was in septic chock at that visit) this required surgery and a 5 day stay in the hopsital for IV antibiotics.
months later still pain constant pain, i was also not able to have sex with my husband and made multiple trips to the er for pain and blood in my urine yet there was never bacterial growth in my urine. i told my surgeon i wanted the sling out and he said fine, went in for the surgery and when i woke up he had told my husband that he could not remove the sling as it had grown into the tissue around it. so he trimmed it up and loosened it up and that should do the trick. 5 days after that back into the er for sever pelvic pain the ct showed i had a 6 cm mass on my right side. guess what more surgery and a 3 day stay in the hopsital. with all these surgeries my S1 was herniated so i had to have surgeryfor that. i still cant have sex with my husband and there are days that i am in so muc pain my husband has to help me out of bed and to the bathroom and when i pee i feel like i am being stabbed. so back to to doc i go and once again there is blood in my urine and no bacteria. so he wanted to do a cytoscopy, this is where they incert a camera into your bladder and check for irritaion and blood and possible cysts. the inside of my bladder was perfect so he did a plevic exam and rubbed on where my sling is and it hurt like hell. my doctors diagnosed me with IC even though my bladder is fine, i kept saying i know it is the sling and he tells me it is not he wont remove my sling and wants me to start treatment for IC. i did my research and there are a lot of women out there who were diagnosed with IC and dont have it and it really is from the sling. i dont know where to go to have some one take this nasty sling out of me, my surgeon is the only one i can find in the area and is one of the best in the states.. i wish you luck with your surgery if anyone else is reading this and going thru pain from their sling please talk to me, it would be nice to talk to some one in the same boatView Thread
