Incontinence

TOT sling surgery

12/29/2008

Question:

Will I know if a TOT sling surgery has been successful immediately in the days following the surgery? If successful will leaking upon coughing or sneezing stop or does it take time for the sling to work?

Answer:

TOT result is noted immediately following surgery. Urinary leakage suggests either failure of surgery, over flow incontinence or neurogenic bladder and hence incorrect indication for TOT.
