i read an article in the Lancet today, December 2016 (given to me by a consultant ) suggesting 80% women having vaginal wall surgery in the UK have a recurrence of symptoms within 2 years. in other words the vast majority of women, 8 out of 10, are no better off. (traditional and mesh repairs)
last week i saw a surgeon who said 8/10 operations are successful....how can both these figures be true when they contradict each other, totally?
Having already had failed prolapse surgery i feel pessimistic. i don't know whether it's worth trying again, especially with such confusing odds or just learn to live with the discomfort. i fear the possibility of being left with pain. Can anyone suggest why such different odds are offered?
