Bladder: Hopefully your md is going to discuss the risks with you. There are risks with every surgery. You should have a lengthy discussion with your md and receive a written consent form to review as well. Yes, the sling has risks. Have you spoken to a urogynecologist about this? In general, bladder tends to worsen over time, but it depends on several factors. Seek qualified help.
