← Return to recurrent bladder infections after prolapse surgery

Comment receiving replies

I have had a bladder sling put in and have infection pretty much back to back too. I ended up in the hospital with c-diff for 6 days because the antibiotics killed off the good bacteria in my system as well as the bad.

Bless your hearts, ladies! I am so thankful to read your comments and to have declined the same bladder sling surgery last year! Whenever I've had a urinary catheter, I've always gotten a bladder infection. I don't understand why you would have repeated bladder infections, but I want to figure it out now. I can understand having one infection right after surgery but multiple infections? I don't believe you should stay on the antibiotics because that is detrimental to your immune system. You need your good bacteria! I am wondering if there is some sort of 'defect' in your bladder slings. If so, you may have a malpractice case. Certainly you can see the physicians at Mayo Clinic. Even if you are far away, you can make an appointment and it would be worth it to travel to one of their locations to be evaluated. Please don't wait another day. Make your appointments today. I hope you both have a wonder holiday season and that you find the best medical care possible for your conditions. I'm so sad that you've both been so ill because of a surgery that was supposed to make your life better. Blessings, be well!

how does the sling work i had a blatter lift years ago so not sure what to go with
