    I had a mesh sling along with laproscopic hysterectomy done at University of Nebraska Medical Center by Dr. Neena Agarwala in I believe, 2009 or 2010 for stage 4 prolapse. I noticed beginning of returned prolapse about 1 11/2 years ago although not as severe as before. The last few months I have had increased prolapse, pretty significant RLQ pelvic pain, painful intercourse, difficulty with urinating and a horrible sense of fullness in my pelvis. And, to top it off, I am between employment and can apply for cobra coverage but it is insanely expensive. I also hate to start a new job and then have surgery (if needed–which I’m afraid it may be) a month later. Is there anything that can be done to help? I do have my medical records from UNMC-Omaha from the surgery. Thank you for any help you can provide.
