I'm wondering if anyone has had TVT (trans-vaginal tape) surgery recently that can share their experience. I'm 46, never been pregnant, but experiencing mild UI (withouth prolapse) that has gotten slightly worse in the past two years.
My urologist is really gung-ho on me having TVT and initally explained it as a quick and painless procedure. However, after discussing it further with him it seems this is more involved than he initially portrayed. I am concerned about the long healing time and have heard horrible stories (some on here) about complications no one really talks about, like chronic pain. While I understand that some of these complications may be due to the older types of suspension tape and fabric used, I'm feeling more and more that I may be facing a bigger problem down the line if I go through with this. I also think that each person has wisdom about their body that is often not acknowledged by science.
Can anyone please advise?
