    I had a complete vaginal hysterectomy in July 2004. My doctor suggested a bladder sling that would alleviate leakage and support my pelvic floor, which I agreed to have. The benefits of the bladder sling were short lived. I also have pain during intercourse, but have not discussed this with a doctor. I’m not sure whether or how I should proceed.
