Had bladder sling surgery. Had the sling cut through urethra. Wore catheter. What can explain groin pain?

Over a year ago I had bladder sling surgery. The surgery was aborted when the sling cut through my urethra . I wore a catheter for over 3 weeks and when it was removed my incontinence was more severe. I scheduled another surgery that was eventually performed and successful. The second surgery was done in August 2011. By October it seemed I started having pain directly in my groin . It hurt to do stairs, push the vacuum and even to just walk a little distance. In february my surgeon couldn t explain the pain and said it wasn t normal. I had a second opinion in may and was told the mesh seemed to be intact. Here it is one year later and I am still in pain. Currently it is all the time. I am still having good success with the incontenence but this pain makes it very difficult. I feel as if I have no options in dealing with this.

Hello I have gone through your query and understood your concern.

In my opinion, the complications occurred might be because of urinary tract infection and bladder stones causing obstruction and pain secondary to surgery. Investigate ultrasound abdomen and x-ray KUB and you might find diagnosis.

Hope this helped you.
