Angry - Stitches in vaginal area 18 months post hysterectomy and repairs Stitches in vaginal area 18 months post hysterectomy and repairs

I had a hysterectomy, recto-seal, bladder lift, etc.. in October of 2012 in the past two months, my husband felt something inside during sex. I had felt something tugging but just figured it was from all of the reconfiguration, since it has been such a long time. But the "obstruction" seemed to get bigger so I went in to the OBgyn. They examined and visually saw what I had described as a rope. In fact it was stitches that had not dissolved from the surgery. They cut the portion out that was accessible in the office today.

I have had many bladder infections in the months after the surgery and a few since that time. Anyone else have anything like this so long after surgery? I am concerned what else is inside that has not dissolved, and if this is normal.

Please post if you know of this or have experienced anything like this.

Thanks

If you have a bladder sling I would very strongly suggest you go to another doctor, that sounds more like mesh erosion than stitches. Mine sling caused an erosion also and what you describe is all too familiar. Stitches you would have felt all along they don't suddenly appear after 18 months. Sounds like your doctor may have misled or directly lied to you.

Yes, you need to talk to your surgeon or get a copy of your surgical report to see exactly what you had done. I would look for a urogynecologist that specializes in pelvic floor repairs to take a look at you as well.
