How long does the pain last?

I am in quite a bit of pain in the area the tvt needles were passed Monday. How long will I have to endure this? I guess it hurts alot because my dr had to make 2 passes on each side of the bladder before he could get the tape through.The scar tissue (like cement) made it very hard for him to maneuver the needles through. I have been using a heating pad on that area. Is heat or cold packs the best at this point?

Peggy, I think I'd try both heat and ice and just see which one felt better. After an abdominal surgery I had last year, I was told to apply ice at first and then heat. I was also told to do either one for no more than 15 minutes at a time. I am sorry you are having this pain. The TVT I had (TOT--transobturator tape), didn't bother me too much but even now, 3 months later, I do NOT like pressure of any kind directly on that area. I sure hope you found some relief this weekend and that things are getting better.

I had very little discomfort for about 3-4 days post TVT.
if you feel youre not getting better with each passing day, call/visit your Dr.

stay well
