I read online how patients may have been made susceptible to post-surgery complications because of surgical mesh or bladder slings. Try checking , the site also have added info about bladder disorders and similar problems.

This is actually a good natural treatment for urinary incontinence. It may also work for patients who wish to veer away from surgery. I found out from though that some patients whose symptoms may have failed to conventional treatments, may require surgical intervention which, in some cases, may involve the use of bladder slings. These devices, however, have been surrounded with various safety problems lately.

I came across some posts at -of-failure/ and found that doctors often recommend conventional treatments including Kegel exercises to boost bladder strength and ease incontinence. However, women, whose symptoms may have failed to improve despite non-surgical treatments, may be asked to undergo surgery for relief. Although surgical procedures have minimal risks, most post-surgery complications have been linked to implants such as pelvic or bladder mesh.

This should be encouraged by doctors instead of immediately suggesting surgeries such as the use of vaginal mesh devices. This has cause injuries to thousands of women after being implanted with these devices. Learn more about these complications by visiting

It is good to know that there's another way of treating urinary incontinence. Many women have tried vaginal mesh implants but a number of them have suffered pain and complications brought by these devices. Doctors should encourage patients to undergo physical therapy instead of getting any surgeries. For those who want to know more about vaginal mesh implants, visit this page
