    Bladder Sling not working anymore

    I had the bladder sling put in 3 years ago and now I'm having the same symptoms I did prior. I have stress incontinence. What happened? Does the bladder come out of the sling? I really don't want to go back to have the
    proceedure done again but shouldn't it last longer than 3 years? Now I'm really stressed. I am only 53 and now have to wear a pad everywhere I go.

    Re: Bladder Sling not working anymore

    Ask your doctor. You may be helped by one of the prescription drugs for bladder weakness. I don't think the sling could have slipped.

    Meanwhile, be sure to use bladder pads, not period pads. I use them and they are much more absorbent and odor free than the ones made not for urine but for the menstrual flow, which is very different in consistency. I find it not at all problematic to wear a pad everywhere I go. But I am soon having surgery for a rectocele and a cystocele and maybe after that I will be pad-free for ever ... or not? It isn't wearing a pad I care about, but other symptoms related to the 2 above probems ....

    Good luck!
