Hello, I'm 51 years old, live in the UK and had a vaginal hysterectomy (leaving my ovaries) and an anterior repair exactly 1 year ago. I knew within a few weeks after the op that I should also have had the posterior repair done but my uro gynae specialist, for one reason or another decided that it was best done separately.
So now I'm scheduled for a posterior repair in the autumn.
I've also got some bladder stress incontinence (not terrible but when I cough or run) and after proving this with a uro dynamics test, my surgeon has agreed to do the TVT and the posterior repair at the same time. The logic being they are separate walls of the vagina I guess. One op - one period of recovery instead of two.
As I said I'm using a uro gynae consultant who knows their stuff but I'm very scared of potential side effects of the TVT.
Has anyone had both these ops together? Would you advise it?
Has anyone had lasting problems after a TVT?
