What causes mild fever and pain after bladder mesh removal and cystocele repair?
Mild infection seems likely, worried about you seeing the sutures though
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Mild pain and low grade fever signifies a possible minor infection / post operative inflammation.
That would explain the response to Cipro ( antibiotic ).
SO continue the entire course, and I think the pain, fever and the swelling should subside.
Actually you should NOT be able to see the sutures,if you are able to do that, that means it is possible that the incision dehiscenced or the repair failed.
Poking sensation is common as the sutures take some time to get absorbed.
Are you trying to look inside, or are the sutures visible outside the vulva ??
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Slough is normal at this time.
Okay, if they are not protruding, mostly it has not dehisced yet.
Slough is normal as the sutures start to heal off.
As long as there is no noticeable discharge with odour, then there is no cause for concern.
5mm is too small an area to be able to see anything clearly, it could be mostly slough.
Have you had a follow up visit yet ?
If not, one is essential to know if the dehiscence has occurred.
