    I am not aware that a sling can be put in after the sp tube is in but I am not an expert on this-I would ask your urologist.

    i just did a search on the care cure forums, using the words "urethral sling" and found TONS of info/posts. here's just one, by nurse kld:

    A urethral sling is used (primarily for women) to increase the angle between the bladder and urethra, which reduces leakage. It is often used for women who have had children, bladder or uterine prolapse, or long term use of indwelling urethral catheters.

    It should be used very cautiously for women with a neurogenic bladder, as it increases resistance and can cause increased bladder pressures. If combined with a SP catheter, this is less of a concern. Slings can be done with your own muscle, or with artificial material (usually Dacron). It is pelvic surgery, and on women is usually done through either the vagina or through a small suprapubic incision (or both).

    Here is a short article and diagram of the sling procedure:
