I feel your pain. Over the past three years I've have 5 surgeries for pelvic mesh issues. Oh, that burning, digging pain with urgency and bladder spasms! My solution was to have the mesh behind the bladder removed and use my own scar tissue (I had plenty - silver lining, right?) to support my bladder. Is my pain gone? Not completely; but there is improvement. My bladder pain is much better, and my continence is good. I'm 12+ weeks post-op from the mesh removal, and still experiencing left side pelvic pain that is debilitating most days. I have posterier mesh for rectocele, too, so I will be seeing the specialist again next week to assess if that's the cause or some other complication from the mesh implants.
I have my days where it feels as though I'm never going to be through with this and cry my eyes out through my doctors appointments. Very embarassing. But I keep reminding myself that this is a journey, there is no one size fits all solution. But as long as we're making baby steps in the right direction, we will eventually get there.
And btw, have a doctor that believes
you, even if they can't find the immediate cause. My doctor prayed with me last visit, and while my pain is still there, my spirit was recharged by his caring attitude. And this site is amazing, come back whe you feel like you're the only person you know dealing with this. We are here.
