5 mths post-op TAH/TVT...peed the bed??!??

I am 5 months post-op TAH/TVT and am still having issues with exposed mesh and urgency incontinence (am taking Enablex, but doesn't seem to work like it did pre-op). Last night I woke up in the middle of the night because I peed the bed!!!! Has this happened to anyone else here? Does this mean my TVT is failing? Maybe it is just bladder spasms and the Enablex for my urge incontinence is just not working? I have to schedule an appt with my uro/gyn to follow up on my exposed mesh, but that will not be until sometime late April/early May.
Please tell me I am not a lone freak and that there is a medical explination (hopefully that can be addressed) for this! Maybe even a "this will only happen once" would be great!

I'm so sorry you are continuing to have such problems. It's so hard to know exactly what's going on. If it were me, I'd ask for an earlier appt. just to discuss things with my Dr.

Urge incontinence is a different thing completely than stress incontinence (SUI). Usually, TVT's are done to help with SUI. Bladder spasms can explain what happened to you but other things can also. Talking it over with your own health care provider is most likely the thing that will be the best to help you.

For me, I know that in the past, I've needed to stay away from such things as caffeine and drinking lots of things right before going to bed; especially if I know my bladder's been having problems already.

Sending an extra and good vibes.......

I had a sling put in Nov. of 2005, some time in o6 I had that problem two times, after never having it my whole life. That was it though, it never happened again.
So it does not have to be an ongoing problem. Rest assured just because it happened does not mean it will be a long time problem. I had woke up in the middle of it twice, it was pretty upsetting, but I am sure things will settle down for you too.
Good luck!
