Approaching surgery date

Dx with grade  2 rectal and bladder prolapse, grade 1 uterine prolapse, frequency and stress incontinence.   I saw three board certified urogynocologists.   Recommended surgery was using porcine to repair prolapses and a mesh sling. I am nervous about using mesh due to all of the negative publicity.   Any feedback would be appreciated

The porcine products such as SIS Surgisis are fine.  Mesh use in mid urethral slings for stress urinary incontinence also are fine.  They work very well and complication rates are low when placed by experienced surgeons.
