Event Description
Urogynecology surgery to implant ethicon 810081 gynecare tvt obturator system for stress incontinence on (b)(6) 2014. I experienced pubic pelvic pain with inner groin thigh pain and i experienced terrible leg cramps. The tvt sling actually made my stress incontinence worse. It has taken me over 3 years to find another doctor to try to remove it. My symptoms are far worse. I now have terrible sharp pains in pubic area with sitting and getting up. Also sharp pain when bending down and squatting. Stress incontinence worst. Deterioration of pubic area tissue formed over clitoris and labia lips almost nonexistent. Burning vulva and nerve pain. Scheduled for tvt sling removal on (b)(6) 2017 in (b)(6). Warned it is a very risky surgery to remove it, but i cannot take the pain anymore.
