If you could delete me from the thread. I have had resolution to my symptoms, turns out my symptoms were due to a failed bladder sling and since taking my sling out I am now symptom free. thank you

Jun 3, 2015 · bladder mesh for urinary incontinence--failed surgery in Kidney & Bladder

I had bladder mesh surgery in 2008, my surgery was successful however, I now am plagued with frequent UTI infections and pain. The infections started the day I left the hospital. I never had a UTI infection prior to the mesh surgery. I can not go more than a year without an infection. When I get one, they are hard to get rid of. I have been to many doctors and have taken many antibiotics and there is no end in sight. A number of the front line antibiotics used to treat my UTI’s are no longer working. Because the mesh is doing what it is supposed to and there does not appear to be any erosion of the mesh, I am being told to leave it alone, it can not be completely removed and probably will cause more problems to remove it. But meanwhile this mesh is ruining my life. I feel like my body is trying to reject it. Most recently, I have had 5 confirmed infections in a 5 month period. Plus I have been told I have Interstitial Cystitis as well. Both of these are treated differently. Very confused as to what else I can do. Does anyone know of a Doctor who has dealt with UTIs due to pelvic mesh and has a background in Interstitial Cystitis?
