In brief: Retention?
Have you been tested to confirm retention? Going a little more after voiding is normal, bladder may retain 30-80 cc after a normal void.
Would suspect urgency the main issue and start by stopping all caffiene and acidic beverages. If there is retention (volumd of 150cc or more after voiding) or consistent burning with urination (not a uti) then the sling can be cut in the office to release it.

In brief: See your urogyn
Urinary retention can be dangerous and cause longterm renal problems if not addressed.
Return to your urogynecologist for urodynamic testing to see how to correct your problem.
