Help! I am 32 and have had both anterior and posterior mesh repairs as well as a bladder sling. I just delivered a baby 3 weeks ago...has anyone ever been pregnant after these surgeries?

My prolapse is now worse than ever an it is difficult to walk. The anterior part of my vagina is bulging out and around toward my pubic symphysis. It also rubs on my pad when I am standing. Will this get better as I heal? I am so scared I will have to live like this. My surgeon said my mesh healed well when I was 14 weeks pregnant and he wasn't concerned as it was done well over 18 months prior. My OBGYN said that he could see my tissue had not scarred over the mesh and disagreed with the surgeon. I am in NY...anyone have ANY form of hope for me?

Can you explain this further?

I am confused, as your symptoms are very clear, but you are saying that both your surgeon and OB/GYN are telling you that you are fine? Do they see the bulging and other symptoms, and are telling you that this will heal (just trying to figure out exactly what your doctors said), as well as what did they tell you to expect as far as healing time, and what you should be doing to promote healing.

Congrats on your baby! I hope to hear from you again soon, and we'll help you research this topic, to find other women who delivered a baby (vaginally, right?) after these surgeries.
