Mesh removal recovery? Mesh removal recovery?

Mesh removal recovery?

I am headed for mesh removal surgery in the new year. Only 4 months ago I had a hysterectomy with A&P repairs and a bladder sling implanted. At about 10 weeks I kept feeling something wasn't right. I felt an irratation and poking feeling inside. I discussed concerns of said discomforts at my 10 and 16 week follow up appointments with my surgeon. I had told her I was constantly in pain where the sling is attached and was feeling the poking inside. She totally dismissed my concerns and never even looked internally after my surgery at either follow up ( which I travelled 6 hours for ).

Long story short, I went to a new urogyno who has recently diagnosed me with mesh erosion. I will be getting it out as soon as possible.

Could anyone let me know what to expect for the recovery? My recovery from all the inital work was brutally painful and I'm still sore and swollen four months later (although it is from my body rejecting the mesh ).
Any info would be great. I am highly frustrated and depressed about another surgery and recovery .
Thanks

I wondered how you are? Did you find a Doctor to remove your mesh? I am currently searching for one in Az to remove mine, which is causing so much pain and swelling I cant leave the house. Hope you are better.

I am waiting for surgery still. Things in Canada take a very long time. I am terribly uncomfortable and my symptoms continue to get worse. I want my life back.
Frustrated, swollen, and sore.
I'm sorry to hear of your difficulties .
