Monarc Bladder Sling?! Monarc Bladder Sling?!

Monarc Bladder Sling?!

Has anyone ever heard of a Monarc sling? Is this the kind of bladder sling that causes erosions of the bladder, vagina, etc.? My doctor's nurse mentioned it when she said she was going to schedule the surgery for next month (TVH too). Help! The urodynamics test showed that I have stress incontinence - but I don't want the sling thing if it's going to cause more problems (I can continue wearing Poise pads)! Can anyone out there fill me in on the procedure and what the risks are? I'd like to know more about it so I won't be completely ignorant when I talk to my doctor during my pre-op appointment.

Thanks!
Donna

Monarc Bladder Sling?!

Hi Dfielder,

You can Google monarc sling and read up on it. It is a mesh sling which can cause erosion. Read up on it and speak with your doctor because your stress incontinence may be worse after a TVH if you are having one for prolapse. Since you had a urodymanic test, your doctor can explain the extent of the incontinence.

Best wishes to you - Joanne
