In brief: Urogynecologist

You should seek evaluation by a urogynecologist with experience in performing vaginal mesh revision surgery.
However, your other symptoms are not likely related to the mesh. True vaginal mesh complications include pelvic/vaginal pain, vaginal bleeding, pain with sex, difficult or abnormal urination (after placement), groin pain, or other pelvic symptoms.
