TOT removal/Anterior repair

Hi ladies!!
I have been missing in action from here for several weeks and I'm sorry about that. But now I'm back and I've got lots to update you all on....
First, I still have not returned to the OR for my second surgery. When I went to the dr on June 9 for my 6 week checkup (and to actually schedule the surgery date), my surgeon decided she wanted me to go see another dr that would be assisting in the upcoming procedure. She wanted his opinion on how they should approach things, etc. Well can you believe it took me over a month to get an appt with this other doctor, even with MY own dr calling personally to get it set up? Anyway, so I didn't get an appt with him until July 8th!....Yes you read that right, just yesterday. So during the appt yesterday, he confirmed everything my dr told me needed to be done.
Tomorrow (July 10) I am finally returning to my surgeon to schedule the surgery date, which will likely be in the 2nd or 3rd week of August. (There are many reasons for pushing it off till then---my dr's schedule, my daughters birthday, my daughter's first day of kindergarten, etc)
I will still be having the same procedures done that I'd mentioned before. They will cut the TOT sling and remove it in pieces. The problem is getting it all out without cutting a hole in my bladder...mesh is NOT easy to get out! After that, my dr will open up my abdomen and do a Burch suspension and an anterior repair to fix the rather large cystocele I have now.
So that's an update in a nutshell. I thought by now I'd be recovering from the second surgery...and I haven't even begun! *Sigh* The thing that sucks is I'm feeling so good....and I'm going to be starting all over again soon.
Anyway, I will be back sometime tomorrow to let you know the actual surgery date.
