TVT Operation

Please could anymone advise ot to expect with a TVT opertaion . My consultant has said that this is something that I need to look at and he does the operation with a local anaesthetic.

​Any advice would be appreciated.  Pre and post op.  I had a anterior posterior repair with mesh 8 months ago.

​Thank you.

    It is being done more and more under a local anaesthetic and my neighbour had the procedure about 3 months ago. She was discharged the same day, driving after 2 weeks and playing golf after 4 weeks. She highly recommends it and her quality of life has improved 100%

    What is TVT then, as I thought that was the mesh thing which you've already had? I had mesh support for anterior prolapse 9mths ago, which I think was TOP?

    I had the tvt as well as an A& P repair and a total hysterectomy so I was under.

    But have to say I don't have any leakage when I cough laugh or sneeze. It great to be free of pads after yrs of wearing them. Can't really comment on pain etc afterwards due to other procedures at same time.
