Most surgeons have stopped using these but there can be erosion or other mesh-related​ problems long after these surgeries.

It is true some women have problems following Vaginal mesh surgery many years later however, there are many many more without any problem more than 15 years later. You may never have a problem but if you do, please seek help from a Urogynaecologist who willl deal with it or refer you to someone who can help you.

I think that it would be a good idea to see your GP in the first instance who may be able to answer your concerns. Alternatively, the GP may choose to refer you on to a gynaecologist for a clinical assessment and further advice.
