Hi Diligent,

Wearing cotton panties helps you to breathe down there. And absorbs moisture which helps prevents infections. Also white is the color that you should use. Same with socks. White cotton socks, being you are diabetic, you need to take really good care of your feet too.

Hope this helps some,

Hugs, Karen

Hi Diligent, I wear both cotton and silky but with cotton lining. Wearing tight fitting jeans all the time can cause infections cause like Karen said we need to breathe.
I have one more load of clothes to get out of the dryer. I cleaned one large area rug with the carpet cleaner, that got to my hand real quick and I will pay for that. But everyday no matter what I do I hit that brick wall about 3:00. When the energy is gone it is gone there is no pushing.
I have an issue with balance or lack of I should say.
I know someone that had the sling surgery done and it wasn't bad at all. I hope you recover quickly.
luv and hugs

Hi Diligent.

I was just writing with concerns about the tvt sling. I wanted to know if they were going to use natural cadaver tissue. If they plan on using a teflon material be very careful. I had the teflon sling in and I knew I was in trouble a week after it was put in as I couldnt sit up without terrble pain. As my body had started to heal the sling was pulling hard against my urethra to the point of almost severing it! Turned out if you had a history of scar tissue it would bind up the sling. And I was told when I went back to the doctor that he could put these slings in women but not take them back out,that a specialist would have to do it. He did take me in for a tvt release to stop severing the urethra but refused to do anything else. So then I go and see the specialist and she told me that its way harder to remove it as it fuses to your tissues and for me most likely the loose strips would fuse to my bladder.At that point she would try to take the pieces out but it could cause incontinence. So the best thing to do for now was to leave it alone,just cut and released so, natural cadaver and you won't have this problem. Now I am back to leaking again and not even sure if they can put in any kind of tvt slint
