Re: TOT sling recovery?
Annette - Thanks so much for your reply! I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate it a lot. I did get in to see the Dr. on Monday. Had to be a little pushy with the office staff, but it was worth it. She said everything was going fine, but I still had a little inflammation - so to take Ibuprofen and start taking daily warm baths. She said not to worry about the 1 leak so far. And it still has been only one leak since it was put in 10 days ago - YEAH!!! So, I'm pretty pleased - that is a HUGE difference from where I was. I'll be checking in with the doctor again next week.
I'm going to keep reporting on this thread because I know a lot of women have this surgery, and I kept finding horror stories when I was looking, although I know there must be positive stories. I really appreciate my doctor's caring attitude, and I think this already is a major improvement in my quality of life.
Oh Annette - on the retention issue. The doc had done a urinalysis beforehand and told me that there was very little issue of that being a problem for me because I had strong out muscles. I was glad she checked that (and other things) because I had read about the retention issue. Also, when I was in the office on Monday, they did a ultrasound on my bladder to make sure I wasn't having retention problems.
OK, that's all for now. I'll report again...
