Urogynecology : I recommend you schedule a visit with a very experienced urogynecologist. This sounds like a complex and somewhat unique medical situation that would require an expert. Sling placement & removal in general do not lead to these kinds of problems. Something out of the ordinary must be going on and seeing a specialist is key.
