I had the same problem and my transvaginal sling did erode into my vaginal wall. Estrace cream can not prevent it. My gynecologist put it in 2005 and I had to go to a urologist surgeon who tried to remove most of it. There is a major lawsuit going on that the makers of these slings used polyprolene without proper testing and the Fda approved. Now the FDA told all the manf, drs and hospitals not to use. My urologist in 2008 after partial removal put in a sub-uretheral sling supposed to be better but now problems again. Go to a urogynecologist this is there specialty due to the thousands of woman with no good mesh. Go to vaginalmeshhelpline.com for more info and get your surgery documnentaion to find out if your sling is part of this lawsuit. If so get a lawyer quick because 2 yrs and you may not be able to file it. Go to a urogynecologist to get some advice. Hope I didn't freak you out but this has ruined alot of women's lives, marriages and health. Goodluck and I hope you are ok.
