Question:

I HAD A MONARC SLING PUT IN 6/10 AS WELL AS A&P REPAIR.


IS IT OK TO GET IN A POOL? I USE BAQUACIL PRODUCTS NOT
CHLORINE-THANKS

NANCY

Answer:

Dear NANCY,

Recently, the Mayo Clinic urologists reported their clinical results.
About 82% of women were completely dry, after a Monarc sling procedure, 9% were greatly improved and 9% were slightly improved.

The cure rates and complications of the Monarc sling procedure are
comparable to other tension-free slings at one year.

After an anterior or posterior repair ( A&P repair) docs advise you to just do gentle movement to start with and to avoid strenuous effort for the first six weeks.

After this time you can build up to your normal levels of activity but it may take time for you to regain your previous levels of fitness.

During the first few weeks you may notice a bloodstained discharge from the vagina. If the bleeding is heavy, smelly or you feel unwell then it may be a sign of infection and you should visit your GP who, after assessing you, may prescribe antibiotics.

Baquacil is healthier than chlorine, but does not sanitize effectively.
