HERE! I'm here!
So a year ago I had my hysterectomy and reconstuctive surger and they put my bladder in a sling right.

So I don't know, maybe 2 months ago I was finally able to start peeing normal again, as in, I got the "aaahhhh" sensation back. But now sometimes when I go I can feel little air bubbles coming out and sometimes they are bigger air bubbles and it sounds like I just turned on the water hose after it hasn't been used in a while, but it's midstream.

Anyone ever experience this? Is it a side affect of the bladder surgery?

I fully intend on talking to my dr. about this but I'm going on vacation for a couple days in 2 weekks and wanted to wait until I got back.

I had the same surgery and did not have the symptoms you are describing. I did not take as long to get the "aaahhh" feeling, I had it within a week, so maybe your sling is/was too tight. I had a friend who had this done and she still has trouble "letting it out".

Gees, I don't get to check in here much but I can add to this one. My sister had that done and had to have it redone cause it was too tight and the sling began to grow into the tissue around it. I say go back to the dr to see what's going on.

My mom had the sling surgery done about 4 years ago and her's has stopped working. She is back to where she was before with that "gotta go NOW" feeling when it hits her. I'm wondering, after reading some of these posts, if it would be beneficial for her to go have it checked by her doctor.

My aunt's didn't work the first timwe aroudn either, btu she also didn't give her self the recovery she was told to get, since she said she felt better and she's a "busy body." Her bladder fell after the first surgery and she got the "bulging feeling" down there. Second surgery was over a year ago now (maybe two?) and seems to be working. she made sure to rest thsi time.

I rested up for the most part, meaning I didn't do anything strenuous. But my urgency has never gone away, and it hurts, badly, if I try to hold it. Everyone makes fun because I always say, "Oooo... just found out that I have to pee". I'm just glad that I don't leak anymore, jeez, I couldn't run, jump, nothing. Course the kids thought that was pretty funny too, when I'd tell them "I can't or I'll pee on me".

I'll make a dr. appt when I get back from vacation. Just in case they want me to have surgery again. That's gonna suck.

Sorry you are having problems MunQue. I took it easy after my surgery too and it never relieved me of my urgency or leaking issues. I didn't go back because I am so disappointed that it didn't work. Maybe not the best reasoning!

Make your appointment now and get one right after vacation. I know someone who had it, the sling grew into the tissue and has been in pain for years. She is sorry she didn't go back soon enough.

Sorry for that MunQue, but you have to do it.

ok,now I'm worried. I had surgery last week to remove a tumor, but the surgery couldn't be completed, as my uterus was completely scarred shut from my last c section. Dr said she's never seen anything like it(words you do not want to hear from the girlie parts Doctor). Anyway, I go back Friday for her to decide if I need a hysterectomy now. Is this bladder/sling thing part of the normal surgery ? or did something else require it ?
do tell, now I'm anxious...

OK
A friend of mine had this done a couple of months ago when she had a hysterectomy but I don't think it was part of it, just did at the same time.

I have been thinking about getting it done but I'm nervous.

no, it doesn't have to be part of the normal surgery, most people that have a prolapsed uterus also have a prolapsed bladder, that's what happened to me, my uterus fell and took all my other insides with it!

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
My doc just "tacked" my bladder in place when doing the hysterectomy. Don't know what that means, but my doc here says he did a really good job and I've never had any problems. Frightening imagery though.......

tacking the bladder is normal, you get the sling when it's really bad, for instance, if you pee all over yourself on a regular basis.

ok, maybe not "normal" but if there is something wrong, it's the preferred surgery.

ok, that could qualify as the most hilarious sentence by itself that I've read on BOL...that could be a topic by itself!
