Urethral Sling Operation
I am post-op 14 days. Should I be noticing an improvement with incontinence by now or is it a gradual improvement over the next few weeks?
The positive result following urethral sling procedure should be immediate. I am afraid your surgery may not have worked. You should contact your surgeon. The other possibility is that you may not be emptying your bladder and hence have OVERFLOW incontinence.
