    Bladder sling & scratching during intercourse

    I had a hysterectomy as well as had a bladder sling put in. The first time my husband and I had sex (after 6 weeks) he felt "scratching". I can feel the scratching as well. I left a message with my doctor for a follow up but I was just wondering if this is something that anyone has ever heard of? Is this a common problem? Thanks for any advice!

    Re: Bladder sling & scratching during intercourse

    Hi mcmtenor,

    I was supposed to be having the bladder sling in nov op to lift my bladder to stop incontinence but the day of op i asked if i could have fascia taken from above my pubic area to make a sling out of my muscle to avoid the above as i read so many stories on the net of people saying they had probs with the tape they use for the above.

    Make an urgent appt to see urologist a.s.a.p. i would.

    Dolphin.

    Since my initial post, I have seen my doctor and it turns out that my vaginal incision from the surgery had not healed all the way. Or it had healed but had opened up. I was on Premarin for 4 weeks, which stimulates healing, and it did help and my incision closed up. However, I am having the problem again - which he said could happen. I have a call into his office, so I'm waiting on them to get back to me.

    Dear mcmtenor,
    Your sling has eroded into your vagina. You should see your urologist or gynecologist urgently.

    I just had mesh revision surgery last week and so far, so good.
    I am feeling much better already. This seems to be something, while not common, is at least not unheard of.
