Dear Dr. Aguirre,
I just want to take a moment and thank you for everything that you have done for me!
When I visited you a year ago, I was not in a good place. I was having discomfort with intercourse, a small bit of urinary incontinence and retention. You quickly assessed that the sling that I had placed previously by a different physician had shifted and become too tight, thus leading to all of these issues.
We scheduled a surgery to remove the misplaced sling. Although this was a procedure that could lead to greater incontinence, it was worth the removal and healing time to me to readdress my situations.
Sure enough, after the removal, I had an issue voiding and ended back in the hospital for a couple of hours to have a Foley placed. When I phoned you with my problem, you responded immediately and the hospital tool care of me promptly. The following days your staff was very attentive, educational and compassionate.
Once I healed, I found that not only had my incontinence gotten worse, but I wasn't able to enjoy my life because of the inconvenience it created.
Back to the OR we went and another sling was placed. I can sadly say I have had more surgeries than I would like at age 39 and this recent sling placement that you did for me was the easiest and best surgery I have ever had. I thought Shawna was joking when she said I would only need Advil if anything at all. She was correct....I didn't even take that! I had immediate results and I could enjoy life more than ever.
Thank you so much for your kind bedside demeanor, your concern and of course your expertise!
Sincerely, M.J., Castle Rock, CO
