I had the Monarc Sling procedure in July of 2005. Despite some difficulty with urination first thing in the morning, I have never had any problems with it that I know of. However, 2 months ago I started experiencing bleeding (bright red blood) from my urethra. My doc tested me for UTI and the results were negative. The bleeding continues intermittently and I sometimes have pain just under my ribs on the left side. He referred me to a Urologist for further testing and examination, however the Urologist does not take Medicaid which is my only insurance (I am on disability for other reasons). Has anyone ever experienced bleeding or other similar problems after a Monarc sling, especially after 6 years?  (May 16, 2011 | post #1999)

Who do you support for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin in 2010?

Ron Johnson has neither the experience nor the chutzpa to make a difference in the US Senate. Russ Feingold has what it takes to take care of his constituents.  (Oct 15, 2010 | post #132)

Long Island health officials ready for mosquito battle

We can always try starting our own discussions on the topix page, but Newsday may try to censor that too. I don't always like some of the posts on here, but that all comes under our right to free speech - our Constitutional right, that is. So, Newsday, stop playing censor - that's NOT guaranteed by the Constitution.  (May 3, 2008 | post #11)

Syosset mom convicted of sex abuse gets new trial

Can lawyers be charged with malpractice? What an incompetent jerk. I don't question her guilt, but even a guilty person is entitled to a competent attorney.  (Apr 30, 2008 | post #26)

Trio throw 'No Parking' sign through car window: police

There was a time when young (not juvenile) offenders of this type were given a choice of a few years in jail or a few years in the military. The military usually won the day and the ex-offenders I've known changed dramatically after their time in the military. Ex-offenders who went to jail just kept coming back through the legal system time and time again.  (Apr 27, 2008 | post #59)

New device protects city domestic violence victims

My experience, yes personal experience, has been that the only offenders who go to jail are the ones who kill or nearly kill their victims. Hiding behind a protective order has no effect so your comment is an asinine concept. It was when I pressed charges and got the protective order that the stalking began, my home was broken into, I was harassed at work, even followed when I went shopping. My children were also followed and stalked. No one would enforce the order because by the time the cops got there, he was long gone. Protective orders? False hope. Ankle bracelet? False hope - he will get free and start the same thing all over again. As sex offenders cannot stop their behavior, batterers cannot stop theirs. There should be a separate prison for them all so they can victimize each other and leave the rest of the world alone.  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #15)

New device protects city domestic violence victims

The article said the offender must agree to wear this device. How many habitual offenders do they think will agree to this? And as Anon mentioned, the **** could easily do what he wants before 911 is ever notified. Sounds like more false hope to me. Offenders should stay in jail before, during and after trial to give the victim some peace.  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #6)

Sounds to me like he was stating an opinion based on a basic truth - Chinese goods have always been inferior and their record on human rights has always sucked. That's my stated opinion of the Chinese government. Mr. Cafferty stated his opinion also. We both have a Constitutional right to express those opinions. If anyone has a problem with that, perhaps they should move to China.  (Apr 19, 2008 | post #37)

I can understand their not wanting to go to Iraq. Who in their right mind would? My only question is why did they join the Marines in the first place? Surely they must have known they were likely to go there, just like everyone else in the military.  (Apr 6, 2008 | post #9)

Accident Ruins 800-Lb. Man's Date

Excellent description of the bottom line of addiction. It really doesn't matter what our addictions are; each time a person uses, it's by choice. Unfortunately, for a lot of people there are withdrawal problems, but they only last a couple of days. All addictions will kill eventually unless different choices are made. That this guy has lost more than a third of his body weight is incredible. I hope he sticks to it.  (Mar 11, 2008 | post #61)

Emotional Favre: The fire is gone

Brett Favre, in my opinion, will be known as the greatest quarterback ever in the NFL. There are a lot of Green Bay fans drowning their tears in mugs of locally brewed beer in taverns all over Wisconsin tonight. But I'm happy he retired when he did - at the top of his game. No one can replace him, but the Packers will always be great to the home town fans. Something selling out at sport stores is a t-shirt that says, "Favre 4 President". I bought one and just may write him in when I vote in November.  (Mar 6, 2008 | post #3)

CPS supervisor suspended in New Cassel killings

Bottom line - the guilty person is the mother. Period. What I don't understand is how she can plead not guilty after confessing to killing the children.  (Feb 26, 2008 | post #159)
