Complications are rare, but no procedure is completely free of risk. If you are planning to have a urethral suspension, your doctor will review a list of possible complications which may include:
- Reactions to anesthesia
- Inability to urinate
- Continued incontinence or recurrence of the problem
- Damage to other nearby organs or blood vessels
- Erosion of the mesh material used during the procedure
- Pain (eg, during sexual intercourse)
Your overall health will determine if you are at risk for complications. Talk to your doctor about any factors that may increase your risk.
