In pelvic floor procedures involving the use of a mesh, some complications can only be resolved through mesh removal. There have been instances in which the mesh has become embedded or has resulted in the erosion of some of the pelvic floor organs (i.e., the bladder).
Complications involving a surgical mesh include:
- Vaginal, groin, urethral, rectal, or suprapubic pain
- Vaginal bleeding or discharge secondary to mesh exposure
- Painful intercourse for you (dyspareunia) or your partner (hispareunia)
