I had a TVT inserted six years ago and was not informed of any possible side effects before the surgery. It has now eroded into my urethra and I have to have surgery to remove the erosion. Two surgeon have said that after 6 years tissue has grown around the mesh and it is too dangerous an operation to remove it. Therefore nothing can be done to stop the erosion. I am frantic with anxiety. Can you tell me what the long term effcts of this mesh eroding into me will be?
