anyone have dissolving mesh problems?

I am almost 5 months post-op and wonder if anyone else has had a similar problem. My surgeon placed a dissolving, not permanent, mesh to help support the vagina due to prolapse during my vaginal hysterectomy. She said the average dissolving time is 2 months, and I am now at 4 1/2 months, experiencing green discharge (cultured as normal) and having to wear pantiliners around the clock, using Vagifem 3-4 times a week as this is supposed to help with the healing, and wondering when this is all going to end and I can get on with things! My doctor doesn't seem alarmed, just concerned for me and not able to tell me how long it will be before the discharge stops. I just want to reach out there and see if anyone else has had this happen, so I don't feel like I'm the freak of nature here. I sometimes wish she hadn't put any kind of mesh in there at all, and I would just take my chances with a recurrence of prolapse!

HI Ragtime
I'm sorry you're having this problem. I too had mesh put in to avoid a future vaginal vault prolapse, but it was not a dissolving kind.
Have you tried doing a search using the words "Dissolving mesh"? The search button is near the middle of the page on the right hand side (under the Private Messages link).
I hope things clear up for you really soon!
