    Hi Melons, 

          So sorry to hear that you too are still having problems, it's so not fair, especially as so many of us have been so careful to protect our repairs in hope of them lasting.

              I don't know about the test but pretty sure I have read about it in this forum so someone will I'm sure be able to tell you about it. 

        Hope they find a way to sort things and help you to have good quality of life soon soon.

    Hi melons. Sorry your still having problems. I've had urodynamics following the same surgery. It's not very dignified I'm afraid, you'll have a very fine catheter inserted front and back and it will be filled with water until you feel your bladder us full, then asked to stand and cough and the pee. They are testing the pressure. No pain whatsoever, just not very dignified.

    I agree with Carolyn. It's not the most dignified test but you'll get through it. The nurse who carried out mine was so sensitive to my feelings and made me feel safe and secure during the process. Takes about half an hour is totally painless just exosed in the lower regions with catheter and liquids in and out so they can get a reading. Best of luck. Xx

    Thank you ladies, I had the urodynamics a few years ago so I'm assuming it's similar but with camera's, sorry to hear your still having problems phyl , I'm so disheartened at the moment by it all and even though I did need the surgery I often wish I'd not bothered x

    Was your surgery done by a Urogynaecologist? Wouldn't you go back to that same Specialist for answers?
