Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

After the birth of my children my bladder has never been the same. I cant run, jump, get scared, laugh. I went and got testing dont and they said I may want to get a vaginal sling at the same time I will be having my hysterectomy. Has anyone ever had one, anything I should know?
Thanks!

Re: Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

I had a sling done 4 years ago one of the best decisions I ever made. No more embarrassing coughs, sneezes no special underwear. If it were me I would say do it.

Re: Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

I had a sling several years ago and nothing changed. I do know that the sling will have to be "tightend" periodically.

Re: Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

I had the sling put in place for just the reasons that you are talking about almost 5 years ago. I have not regretted for a minute. I had minor difficulties after my hysterectomy 2 years ago as everything sort of found its new place in my body but by the time I had gone back to work everything was fine and it continues to work excellently. If you are having it done at the same time as your hysterectomy then I think you will be fine and I would encourage it for any woman that is experiencing incontinence issues. I went on to become a high school cheerleading coach after my surgery and never had to worry about showing the squad how to do jumps, kicks or any other move including minor gymnastics as I would have before.

Re: Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

I had permanent sling put in at least 10 years ago. Mine is NOT mesh, but rather skin from a cadaver so it never needs to be tightened. I have never regretted the surgery and have had no leakage since. (Prior to this I had 3 bladder repairs that did not last).

Re: Has anyone had a Vaginal Sling

did you have the surgery because you had some prolaspe and how can you tell if it is to a point where you need to have the sling done. I had the test done to see what is causing my mild incontinence and she did not explain the results..I went to the obgyn to see if I could get collegen injections in the urethra but she did not even want to discuss that my leakage is very mild and can get by with panty liners so thinking the injections would be the thing to try ..I'm very athletic and don't want to have surgery.will post my measurements that the obgyn did and see if anyone here can help me with what they mean. here they are.

With Valsalva, the anterior vaginal wall comes 2 cm above the hymen, the posterior vagina wall comes 0- 1 cm above the hymen, and the cervix/apex comes 8 cm above the hymen
Atrophic epithelium (yes/no)?: no
Discharge?: no
Cervix: normal
Bimanual (uterus/adnexa): normal, AV
Rectovaginal: No masses appreciated, non-tender
Rectocele (yes/no): no

POP Q Measurements:

Aa -2
Ba -2
C -8
GH 3.5/4.5
PB 4/4
TVL 10
Ap -1




Bp -1

D -9
