Question - Can Bladder Sling Come Apart? Can Bladder Sling Come Apart?

I had the TVT about 1 1 /2 years ago. Tonight, as I'm sitting, it almost feels like I have a tampon in when I don't need it......just an irritating feeling. My husband asked if it could be my sling? Not to be gross, but I feel some type of protrusion just inside my vagina or it feels like I do when I sit down.....This is the first time this has happened.. any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

Can Bladder Sling Come Apart?

Jean--

Are you planning on going in to have this checked out by your Dr. soon? If it's a dramatic or irritating enough change in a symptom, it's most likely important enough to be examined by a Dr.

As to your specific question, a sling can 'protrude' through the wall of the vagina. We have several threads on that subject here at Hyster Sisters under mostly the titles of 'mesh erosion. I had several surgeries myself to remove an anterior repair/bladder sling that had protruded time and time again before finallly removing the rest of the majority of it this past February. That may or may not be your problem so please get an exam by your Dr. and then post back here and let us now how things go for you.

Sending good vibes.......

Thanks for your reply. Yesterday it was bothering me, but as the day went on and again today I can't feel anything. Did you have that, where it was protruding and then went back in? I hope I"m making sense. Since I'm not having any issues as of today, I'm not going to call my Dr. I will call if this happens again...... I will take a look at the other posts on this subject. Again, Thanks for taking the time to reply..

Hi....Also too, with the tampon feeling, I had this feeling because of bladder and rectal and uterus prolapse into the vaginal walls....sometimes it definetely can feel like there was a tampon in there.....I would probably get it checked out asap.....it will ease your mind if you find that it is not a mesh erosion.....I did not have the mesh at the time that I felt my "tampon feeling"...so it could be any of a number of different things

Thanks so much.....I will put a call in to the Dr. and just ask him about this. It was so uncomfortable to even sit in my car..but once I stood up, it was much better......It's was so weird.
