I am very sorry to hear that you all are getting UTI's after the mesh or slings. I am terrified now, after reading your comments and also all the hundreds of comments on other sites that have the same issues. I have been putting off having this surgery to repair or lift bladder from a cystocele and I have a rectocele also, spotted on a vaginal ultrasound. I am getting UTI's every 7 to 8 weeks and haven't even had the surgery yet. Been taking Microdantin 50 mg every night. Not sure if I should forget the surgery or not. I am confused. I don't understand where the bacterial comes from either, like many others have stated. I do every thing correct and super clean like a OCD freak with my body and germs. It's weird. And I read so many have gotten C.Diff in hospitals. Both of my parents got C.Diff in the hospital in past 7 months. I do not understand it.
