Monarc Sling Problems
Two weeks ago I had a monarc sling procedure done. I had minimal bleeding and hardly any pain, but now I noticed I have a yellow discharge. I have read that the mesh could erode into the vaginal wall or bladder. Could this be the reason for this unusual discharge?
Vaginal discharge following pelvic surgery is usually due to yeast infection caused by excessive antibiotic therapy. It also can be caused by inflammation of the incision line. See your surgeon. I don't think Monarc has eroded for erosion has many more symptoms than what you have.
