    Sue, I had the sling procedure about 10 years ago and its been fantastic. No more stress incontinence. Takes 6 + weeks to recover properly , and fully healed at 3 months. Dont rush it Can only speak for myself of course.

      I assumed you are finished with child bearing as this will involve stitches in the vagina. You should also refrain from sex for about 12 weeks for a good result. Do make sure your partner knows this.
